So very sorry to hear about your loss. My prayers go out for you and your family. I have 2 daughters and 2 sons, I can't even imagine the pain of losing one of them.
As others have said, cry, it can help heal. Remember the good times and maybe do some special project in her honor.

Brothers, thank you all for your responses. I'm hanging in there but still don't know which way is up. It helps knowing there is such a great group of guys to lean on during this tough time. I have not been able to read all of your responses yet as I get overwhelmed. I will get back to all of you when I can think straight. Again, thank you all. Hug your loved ones and have a wonderful Christmas.
                                                                      Sincerely, Doug B.

I'm so saddened to read this, I have 3 daughters that I worry about everyday, Doug, my heart and prayers go out to you and your family.  Jeff has put together a wonderful family here as well that you can lean on, I may not have the "cure" but never be afraid to pm me and just vent if it helps.  I just can't imagine but like everyone else has stated we're all here for you, stay strong.

Hello Doug,

That is terrible news, please accept my condolences. I can't even begin to fathom what you are going through. My daughter is only 7 months old and I can't imagine losing her. I'm also in Butte, and if you need some time in the woods, you can join me anytime. Heal well sir, these things are best to be dealt with as a community. I'll send you my contact info if you want to talk, knock some trees down, run a saw for a while, make some lumber, or stare into a campfire for a while.

So very, very sorry to hear of your losses. The very act of you asking for suggestions on how to deal with your loss is a step in healing. You are in my prayers. 

10 years ago Dave and I experienced the loss of my son's fiancÚ. They had been together 8 years, she was very special to us.  We grieved heavily and still do but with a lesser intensity. My son, to help with his grieving created a memorial dvd - set to her favorite music. On that video was pictures and videos they had made together over the course of their time together. He made copies to give to anyone who wanted one

Maybe you could do something like that or have someone do it for you.  It helps to go back just to see that smiling face again. It has helped us.

Many Blessings...

A friend of mine made me a video of me & my Sons Logging through the years,with Ted Nugent singing Fred Bear. He took pictures I had sent him & put it all together without me knowing about it. It was very nice of him to do that for me.

Doug,

I just saw this thread, and I can't, we can't imagine what you're going through. My daughter and grandbabies are our life, I can't even get my head around it. As so many have said here already, our thoughts and prayers are with you.
