father of three
my dad died this year April the first he was Just 41 years old. My dad was being held in jail in remand for a month he was about to get out in two weeks time. Me and my younger sister went to visit him in jail we were very excited to see him, my sister is 19 I'm 21 we also have a brother 20. The visit was brief because he got called back to go apply for bail. In that time he had told us that everything is fine just boring! he also mentioned his cell mate was trying to kill himself and he had stopped him. A few days later on Monday the 1st April 2013 the Easter long weekend i called the jail to organize another visit. About a hour later me and my fiance noticed two police officer at our door they were asking for me, i let them in, they then informed me my dad has passed away, she kept talking but i was in shock and interrupted her and said no u have made a mistake she ensured me there was no mistake and she was sorry. I then got extremely angry at her and demanded to know where the guards were and how this happened, she had no answers for me, then i started to cry my fiance comforted me. I was still in shock it didn't hit me for a long time i kept saying i have to go tell my sister and brother now im sorry i need to go. Telling them was one of the hardest things iv had to do, it wasn't easy but i knew now being the eldest i was responsible for my younger siblings. It was on the news 'possible double suicide or murder suicide' i knew he would never ever kill himself i knew it! later on i found out his cell mate had killed my dad while he slept by ligature strangulation then killed himself. Every day is a struggle all we can do is try to live our lives.
