What must it be growing up without a parent because they die protecting you?

Sometimes I wonder how people that had to grow up without a parent due to that reason feel like.

Her story:
She was only 3 years old at the time and her brother was 10 months old. Their father prevented 2 burglars from accessing their rooms. They left but he got shot several times in the process. With his last ounce of effort he managed to call 911, briefly explained what happened and said the address. He died the following day.

Present-day:
They basically never met their father nor have any memories of him, only pic. The poor dude died protecting them. How must that be like? Her brother has been married for 5 years and has a son. My friend's engaged now, the guy is well liked by her family and she once admitted to imagining what it would be like if her father was there.
