My dad was only 41
(River Falls, WI)
My dad was a man that everyone loved! Always had that smile on his face. My brother and I were coming home school Feb. 28th 2012 as it was snowing and slippery out! We arrived home to head the barn and my mom came in and said dad was unresponsive, I called 911! He was feeding a bale of hale and got out of the skid loader to hook the gate while the skid loader was running! He got back in and hit a lever and the skid loader tipped backwards and he broke his neck which cut his air way off and he passed away! I was a senior in high school going to be graduating and turning 18 very soon! We had this big farm and now what were we going to do! There was so much community support that it was hard to belive all the support! My dad was a big part of my life, he has been gone for 9 months now! The farm is gone, my mom moved back to her family and has kinda of pushed me away while im attending college. I miss my dad and there is not a day that doesnt go by I dont think about him! Since he has passed I have had a very hard time showing my true emotions. I tell everybody im ok, but im not im hurting! I cant even go to weddings because I cant have my father walk me down the aile, or the father daughter dance! I dont even want to get married or even have a boyfriend.
