it\'s been one year It has been 1 year, since December 4th 2003 since I came home after school to hear the news from my parents that my dad had 3 brain tumours, and lung cancer that the doctors pronouced terminal /forums/images/graemlins/frown.gif My life has changed so much, we're now looking for houses to move into next year, to downsize because this house is too much work for us with my mom working, and my sister and I at school 5/7 days of the week. I still can't believe this happened. It still doesn't seem real. I still get emotional when I think about him. He meant so much to me, if I could go back a year, I would tell him so much, I never thought of telling him. For me, he was the greatest father I could ask for. He taught me so much for my future. He influenced me, and guided me. He did everything a father could, and more. I have so many memories I will charish for the rest of my life. I never thought this would happen to me, but it did. I can still remmeber my dad in the kitchen, with my mom and sister, talking about what is going to happen. I can stil remember 5 months and 21 days later, when he died in his bedroom, with my mom, me, the doctor, and the homecare nurse at his side. I can still remember the last week of his life, heart wrenching for me to even come in to see him. I can still remember the pervious 3 summers before this summer, getting firewood with him. Learning about nature, and what happens. Exploring the wilderness with him in the passenger seat. I can still remember me and him spending a week working on the Jimmy to fix it. I can still remember my dads jokes about how he will always be stronger than me. I will ALWAYS remember his love. This is all I can right, the pain in my heart is strong.
