Very nice, it's tough to lose someone close.
It's fascinating how the tank can make you feel the calm and peace after losing someone.
I lost my brother almost 4 years ago and sitting in front of the tank just made me think of him. I snapped a picture of my clowns and made it a tattoo. Everytime someone asks me about it, it brings me back.
Sorry for your loss. RIP your dad and my brother.

Thank you everyone! It is so incredibly hard to loose a parent. I know he loved my tank. Went I went to his office he always had pics of my tank as his screen savers. Even during periods when things didn't look so good...lol....
There is nothing more difficult then loosing a parent or child. It must be even harder to loose both within the short period of time like you have. Even though I'm new here I think I speak for us all when I say we got your back and will do whatever we can to help/support you.

It aint just words, believe me :)
Your mum and dad are smiling in this very moment and you can still feel they love you so much!
Absolutely you are so right! I can feel them with me. They both will always be in my heart. The last thing my mom said to me before she passed was, "I will always be with you, I promise".

I saw your post and immediately had a rush of anxiety, as I lost my wife tragically last year. This hobby has helped me more than words can express! I am so sorry for your loss, but want to commend you for being open with your feelings. It's a brave, yet healing approach to sharing your story. Cheers, and happy reefing :)

Thank you so much, and I am so sorry for the loss of your wife, my heart goes out to you! Talking about it is very healing, along with my tank. Cheers to you as well, and happy Reefing! :D
