My dad My hero ( for Fay )
My dad did so many things for us. He had a Massive Stroke and a Massive Heart attack at the same time June 9, 2008.My dad was ok for awhile i really thought he was coming home he passed away on my sons 14th birthday July 30,2008
My heart aches everyday i havent been the same since.
he was so special that i knew .But I actually found out how special after he passed.We never went without always had everything.In 196? my brother and his very best friend were graduating high school my dad bought my brother his high school ring his friend joe said in general conversation he would not be able to get his he did not have enough money my dad asked him how much he had joe said less than half my dad told him he would give him the rest of the money to go ahead and order the ring.Joe got his class ring.My dad and mom always treated our friends as if they were thier kids. My parents next door neighbors would lock thier refrigerator so their kids could not get anything to eat my dad would give them food through their bedroom window.
When my dad had his trauma in 2008 i was at hospital all day everyday my mom and dad made me poa. on July 30,2008 the heart specialist calls me at work i go to hospital and he says even if your dad recovers from stroke he will need open heart surgery and most likley will not survive only 10 percent of his heart is working so i had to be the one to say ok.... Idecided i did not leave my dad side in life i would not leave his side in death before he passed i gave him permission to go i told him go ahead and go dad go be with uncle carl and grand ma and grampa we will be ok I LOVE YOU. SO IN HIS DEATH I CARRIED HIM TO HIS GRAVE and i just thought at the moment i was carrying his casket of how proud he would be of me .the pain is the same as it was then....................
