I am always active in the forums and I try to write as often as I can but my father passed away today at 11:30 am and this has deeply affected me more than I had anticipated since we knew this was coming for a while now. I am deeply saddened by his passing as he was my inspiration as well as my hero. He was always proud of how much I had grown in sites like Hubpages and often spend hours reading my articles as well as perusing my eBooks. So for now I will be taking some time off while I deal with his departure as I know that I will forever miss him.
I'm so sorry for your loss Luis. Take all the time you need.
My condolences, Luis. I am sorry for your loss.
Keep that wonderful sense of humor you have, it will help carry you through.
Take the time you need. I'm sorry to hear the news.
I'm sorry to hear of your loss, Luis. Take care of yourself, sir. I hope to see you here at HP again soon, when you feel you're ready to come back.
I am sorry for your loss. Even when we expect it, we must grieve and go through our stages of mourning. You have honored him here.
I am truly sorry to hear of your loss. I, too, had a wonderful father. I know you will miss him very much.
As you go through, perhaps the most difficult time in your life, I will hope you convince yourself that your father is going to a better place and condition of life. Even if you don't believe this, even if you have no evidence it's true, just accepting that your father is going to a better place and condition of life would make his journey easier, and your healing and return to normal activities much easier. Be blessed and be consoled, my friend.
Im so sad for you Luis. So very sorry for your pain.
Luis, I'm so sorry to hear about your father's passing. HP will be here when the time is right for you to return. Thanks so much for sharing this with us.
Condolences from myself and the HP Team. We are very sorry for your loss.
My deepest sympathies. The loss of a beloved parent is a terrible thing, and it will take time to heal...but you will heal and the loss of your father will make you stronger. My prayers are with you.
May you be comforted, Luis, in the knowledge that your father was obviously extremely proud of you as expressed in his hours of reading your hubs and your ebooks. You must have given him much joy, and there is no greater gift a child can give a parent.
please accept my condolence. May he rest in peace. Hope that you will take some time to calm yourself. Take care and I will pray for him too.
Deepest condolences in your time of grief. It's always hard to lose those who helped make us better people. Take care.
Luis, my heart goes out to you and your family. No matter how much we know a loss is coming, it's still such a difficult time. I'm sorry for your loss. Sending you many prayers for comfort and strength.
I'm so sorry to hear about your father. Nothing prepares us for the passing of a parent. Sending you love and comfort during this fragile time in your life. Take care and take the time you need.
LuisE, I'm very sorry for your loss. You will definitely need time right now to process this tremendous loss and be with your family. May your dear dad rest in peace. His love will be with you always as you miss him dearly. Peace and blessings.
I'm so sorry for your loss, Luis. My condolences to you and your family.
I'm guessing you have some really nice photos of your father, Luis. Perhaps one day you'll write a hub about him and tell us why he's your hero. He must have been a remarkable man to make such a lasting impression on his son. Sounds like we could all learn a few things from your dad.
Sorry for your loss.
Luis, you obviously had a great relationship with your father, and shall miss him terribly. So many people have not had that pleasure. I have lost both of my parents, and do miss them. I could always make them laugh, and I miss that, too.
One thing that is wonderful, despite the grief we experience, is that they live forever in our hearts. My sincere condolences.
I speak from experience when I say it is a hard thing to go through. It sounds like he was very proud of his son. You have my condolences.
I was so sorry to read this, Luis. Sincerest condolences to you and your family.
I'm so sorry for your loss, Luis.
Take as much time as you need.
It is difficult when your biggest fan passes. Will keep you in my thoughts and prayers. Grieve well, remember well. We will be here when you are are ready to come back.
Okay. I disagree. As much time and support as your father obviously gave you while he was alive, you are not going to use his death as your excuse to stop writing. He might not be here, holding your hand so you'll continue to write, but HE IS holding your heart so you'll have strength to continue. WRITE on!!! My sympathies to you for your loss [I have lost both my parents, also. One in 2012 and one in 1988.
I'm so sorry for your loss. He will live on in your memories. God bless you and your family as you go through this hard time.
My heartfelt condolences. May the spirit you so admired in him be imparted to you.
Peace be with you and your family.
Very sorry for your loss. Take all the time you need to grieve and I hope you find a greater inspiration to write.
Luis, Thinking of you at this very sad time. Take care and my condolences are sent to you and your family. Trudy
This site is a great place to share your grief. I lost my Mom two years ago, and my writing definitely slacked off, especially that first year. But the sympathy and support I found among hubbers was constant. I could express feelings here that I couldn't share with the people in my life "who knew me".
Until I lost a parent, I had no idea how profound the loss was, no matter their age, your relationship with them, or how much warning you had that the end was coming. I also hope you will have the experience I had of an unexpected closeness among my siblings.
My sincere sympathies.
I just wanted to thank everyone for your kind words. As my father told me on more than one occasion:: "Life goes on and death is just another part in a bigger voyage"
I have been a bit behind with reviewing my daily Hubpages alerts, and just saw this post today. I wanted to say how sorry I am for your loss. I lost both of my parents in 2012 within 5 months of each other. I miss both of them deeply each and every day.
I joined a loss of parents support group which helped me a lot. I had to figure how to move forward, with a new phase of my life, and I am still learning. The other thing that helped me was to create a special place to display pictures of my parents to remind me of happy times and how wonderful they were.
Peace be with you,
I'm so sorry. It's very hard when someone we love passes. Just remember everyone grieves in their own way, and that people are going to say things that hurt you more than help you. People who have not lost loved ones don't understand.
As time passes, being creative is a great way to channel some of the difficult emotions you will feel. You may surprise yourself and find writing comforts you. Keep a journal, and you can write to your Father that way. Remember he will always live in your heart, and soon you will think of things about him which will make you smile.
When my husband of 34 yrs. passed 15 mos. ago, the Hubpages family was wonderful to me, and a strong source of support. Some of them continue to be. My prayers will be with you and your family.
My condolences to you and your family. It is understood as to why you should take off from HP for a while.

My pet dog died today. I am devastated and it seems will never recover from this tragedy. It almost seems the end of the world for me.
