My dad passed away

Yesterday my dad passed away from cancer. I only met him for the first time a few years ago. But it was nice to get to know him anyway.
I’m really bad at big events becuase of my anxiety so I’m pretty worried about the funeral and the surf out to spread his ashes. I don’t know that side of my family very well or my half brothers. But I think im going to bite the bullet and just attend. I think it’s the right thing for me me to Do. I don’t have many friends at the moment so thanks to whoever listens.

My condolences. I don’t know what to say to comfort you for an event like this. If it helps, I like to think with our last breath we become part of the universe on a molecular level. You’ll always carry a part of him. It’s undeniable.

Sorry for your loss @Ozzyskits . I found myself in a similar situation a few years ago, when my Dad passed away I had only really gotten to know him a couple of years before.

It’s good to hear you’ll be going to the funeral, and I’m glad you got to know him before he passed

I’m so sorry for your loss. I’m glad you’re going to the funeral. It might help with closure eventually. Maybe your half siblings could become your friends? Maybe you can exchange phone numbers. Invite them out to eat or something.
