Daddy's Brat

by Ky Funk
(Missouri, USA)

my dad passed away from terminal brain cancer july 29th 2012. the last time I saw him alive was july 4th 2012. He would call and tell me that I needed to come home ( I lived 4 hours away) and I kept putting it off and putting it off. I only saw him once a month for a couple of days at a time and I wasn't there when he passed. I feel more guilty than anything else. He always called me a brat,but I would do anything to have just one more moment to tell my dad I loved him.

Ky I am sorry for your loss of your dad. The hardest part of our grief is not being able to see more of the one we have lost. Sadly life dictates our time management and we all procrastinate. It is a part of life that is difficult. Something takes over and our time goes elsewhere. We all do it so don't beat yourself up. Many of us miss the time our parent dies. I got to the hospital too late and my mom passed away. I know how it feels. I cried and cried and was able to expel all my emotion and sadness at that time and it never bothered me again. You have to get it out of your system as it is part of grief. It will take time but you will start to feel more at peace in time. Just one day at a time and feeling our grief more we start to take strides towards moving forward.
