Our Father's Day contest winner with his family: Surjit Singh Flora, wife Gurvinder Kaur Flora, son Satnam Singh Flora, and daughter Gurleen Flora.
Surjit won a $100 gift certificate for Tasty Image chocolates for his heartfelt essay.
My father is always in my heart. I will love him forever... and I have so much pain in my heart. I couldn't believe I lost him, just like that. My heart will never heal. Underneath a calm and happy mask, pain and turmoil continues to churn.
As we celebrate Father's Day, the pain of having lost my father overwhelms me. As I remember him, tears well up in my eyes and stream down my face.
