A very sad day.


My Dad passed away this morning.
He had lung cancer, dementia and had slowly been getting worse.

Mum called us in and he was breathing very slow, Lynne and me went back next door to get dressed and by the time we got back in he had passed away.

Thankfully he was in no pain, and died in his sleep, he was 85.

Mum seems to be holding up well, but I suppose it hasn't really sunk in yet, shes 84.

I just feel numb and lost and am crying as I write this.
I gave him a kiss and said my goodbyes.

I can't get in touch with my sons as they keep on changing their phone numbers, so I don't know what to do.

I phoned my brother yesterday and said he better come and visit as I thought Dad didn't have too long left, and he said he would be down today.
He phoned Mum yesterday and managed to have a few words with Dad, which was good.

Just waiting now for the doctor to come, and then start to sort things out.

I feel like I'm in a dream world at the moment.

And just feel grateful I can come here and put my feelings down.


All my love Dave.
