Lost my dad

Posted by

Hi, I can really relate to everything here so much. I lost my dad last month - he had just moved to Spain with my mum for their dream early retirement and had no signs of illness. He went to the doctor for a routine check up and he was diagnosed with lung cancer that had already spread to his liver, kidneys, muscles and also his brain. He died 2 weeks later. It doesn’t feel real and I can’t get my head around the fact that he is gone. It’s so hard to believe I won’t see him again. I’m trying to focus on the good memories I have but like others have said I just keep going back to the day he died and how he deteriorated so quickly. It’s hard to accept that he won’t be around. He loved the sunshine so I like the idea that he is just on a really long holiday - thank you for sharing that.
