It does not seem possible that a whole year has gone by since I lost my Dad to a sudden heart attack. I think it was the shock that made it all seem not real. There are so many things I wanted to say to him and it makes the grief so intense as now I can’t.
He was so well-loved by all his friends and that showed by the amount of people at his funeral. His family was stretched over three generations with four children, ten grandchildren and ten great-grandchildren plus all the other family members. I was his first child but the marriage didn’t last so I didn’t see him very often during my childhood. Later on, as an adult with my own children, I ended up living in the same area as him so we saw more of one another.
The pain of losing someone you love so sudden and unexpected tears you apart and I miss him so much everyday.
