Dad passed away last night.
It was actually like what people say - it was peaceful. We were all there in his room and his breathing stopped and he turned white.
I tried to find a nurse and when I came back to the room he breathed again.
I got the nurse. He took his last breath and she took his pulse. He was gone.
I'm so sad. But I'm glad he's not lying there anymore. But part of me doesn't believe it.
I miss him already.
Cancer Council NSW would like to acknowledge the traditional custodians of the land on which we live and work.We would also like to pay respect to elders past and present and extend that respect to all other Aboriginal people.
