On Death and Dying

How pathetic is it that I can't bring myself to delete my dad's phone numbers from my cell phone?

Or that I still feel like I should call him? Does that ever go away?

Also - do you think I'll ever get over feeling guilty that I sat at the airport reading a book and didn't even think to call the hospital to check on him until I got their message that he had already died?

Comments:
Not pathetic at all.

No, it doesn't go away, it just lessens.

Yes, you will stop feeling guilty if you let yourself.
 
It isn't quite the same, but I have a friend who died a couple years ago and I still have his AOL handle on my buddy list. I do not plan on deleting it. Same thing with his email
 
I'm so sorry, LQ. It will get better, I promise. And, don't blame you. Guilt is useless. Work on letting go of that.
