I am 21 years old, the oldest of four children and I lost my father and my security to prostate cancer a year ago. I was briefly part of the CSN about a year ago when my 52 y/o father was living with very advanced prostate cancer. At that time I was looking for answers and researching options. Now I am working through a different proccess, life without dad. He was everything to my family, he and my mother had a very traditional type of marraige, but he was always the gentleman and softy of the crowd, and I loved him for that. His life with cancer brought us closer together as a family, even as close as we already were it united us. Now that he has moved on, the family seems to be... lost, I suppose is the word. I was wondering if there are people out there in my age range that would share there stories about the struggles you have to deal with as a young man, the oldest and all the roles you have to play. When someone leaves a family, the dynamics always change, but this change is so great, I am a year later still trying to figure it out. Any idea's?
