Me, my mom and dad
My father died May 3, 2012 of a sudden and asymptomatic massive heart attack. I am 25, married, and live away from home but my older sister, her son (Devin - dad's BEST friend), and my younger brother lived with my parents. They were all there when he collapsed in the garage without a single warning or second to say we loved him. I got the call before I put the offer on my house less than 10 minutes later. My mother called me and said he had collapsed and didn't think she could feel a pulse. So, being a nurse, I immediately stepped into gear telling her places to feel for a pulse exactly how to do it. I walked them through CPR for 2 minutes until the ambulance came.I am having so much guilt because I was looking at putting an offer at my first home right when they called and after the EMTs got there I thought they got him back and I could finish up within a few minutes and rush over to the hospital which was close. When I arrived, I heard the news that EMT failed and he was DOA. I feel responsible but I also know that my dad died the moment he hit the ground and he's with our Glorious Creator in His perfect timing. My father and I had a really rocky relationship until I was I was out of undergrad. My father and I made up and I am so grateful and I loved him so much. I feel so sad any time anything is mentioned that even partially is related but I have utter and complete faith that he was a believer and he is with Jesus and that is a true comfort!!!
