Dear GH,

Good Housekeeping (South Africa) - - YOUR FEEDBACK -

I HAD TO IN­TER­RUPT my read­ing of Su­san Hay­den’s col­umn Los­ing a Loved One in your March is­sue sev­eral times, be­cause I was just cry­ing so much.

Iron­i­cally I did not have this beau­ti­ful re­la­tion­ship with my dad, but I al­ways fan­ta­sised about it and at al­most 50 years of age, the long­ing for it never stops. I’ve al­ways wanted to be some­one’s princess, and to be told I’m beau­ti­ful and ‘any man would be lucky to get you.’

Su­san, your fa­ther ‘did Dad’ to per­fec­tion! What a man he was. Your pain and des­per­ate loss is pal­pa­ble – I so feel for you. You showed me what my dream dad would’ve been like.

I thank you for that, and may you find the strength to carry on with­out this phe­nom­e­nal man. Riana Ap­pel­gryn (Riana wins a Thalgo ham­per worth R2 500)
