One very special dad

by bun

My dad was taken very suddenly and unexpectedly by cancer in December 20th 2012. I am 20 and my brother is 18, he was only 54. It is all still very fresh and i cannot get over that i will never see his smile again. He was such a unique man and always brought the best out of people. It was all so sudden, in the space of four weeks of finding out and until he passed away. My brother and i were at university and weren't told exactly how serious it was until we came back for christmas. I am not sure how people learn to accept this, i still feel he's around and that i will see him when i go home. I haven't really cried much since being back at university, i try to just keep so busy that i cant think about it. When i am alone,however, it does hit me. He truly is very much missed and will never be forgotten.

One very special dad
by: Doreen U.K.

Bun I am sorry for your loss of your dad to cancer. I lost my husband to cancer 10 months ago and it is a horrible disease and loss. I also feel as if my husband is still here and will walk through the door one day. I don't know when I will start to feel differently. My husband had a deadly cancer working with asbestos and he survived for just over 3yrs. It was a long hard painful battle and so this is all the memories I have just now. The cancer journey is a difficult one for many. My husband was 65yrs of age when he died. 16 days before his 66th birthday. Life will never be the same for any of us once we lose someone close and needed in our immediate life. You and your brother are so young so you both have your lives ahead of you. Live it well because life goes so fast and we lose the one's we love so quickly. They are gone before we know it. Don't be too busy that you don't have time to grieve. You will just store this up for later and it will feel twice as bad. Have Dad days where you honour and think of him and can CRY for your loss. You will eventually move forward and life will look better. Keep a journal and a memory book and you will have these forever.
