Its been 7 months and i miss my dad
(Port Elizabeth, South Africa)
I am a 30year old female and the youngest of 5 children. Like all of the people who have written their stories, i have also lost my dad. I lost daddy on 06 January 2012. What a way to start a new year. Losing the one man who will ever love me more than anything in the world. I truly have been blessed to have had an active loving dad who carried my burdens as if it was his own. Its been six months and i cannot seem to get over his death. He was fairly healthy. Smoked like a chimney for years since i can remember, and was taken from us by an untimely heartattack. He had his 1st heart attack only 8 days prior to his death. and the second one was fatal. The night before he died he called me on my cell and said he missed me, i could not go see him and again he called me on the morning before he died and before he put the phone down he just said i should look after myself. an hour later i got the call that i should rush home as my dad was not well. I rushed home only to find my fathers lifeless body laying in the room. to this day i cannot forgive myself for not going to see him when called me that thursday night before he died and the last time we spoke he was wishing me well. I miss daddy like the fibre in my being.
