To my father, thank you for the 59 years!

 few of the last photos with him:(

I know that I haven’t updated my blog for months. I have considered you guys as my family. I thought that I would pass this terrible news.

Unfortunately, my father passed away last July 3 at the age of 59 of a brain aneurysm. We thought that he could make it through but unfortunately things took a turn for the worse. He passed around 1 am.

I had never seen anyone die before. My dad went peacefully but still, it was awfully hard to watch. I had my hand on left hand the whole time. My little brother held a hand or rested his hand on his leg. His heart- he had an amazingly strong heart—stopped beating first. His breathing stopped in fits and start after that. Maybe two minutes, maybe three. Those are minutes I will never forget.

My Dad is a man of few words, but he has thought me many things through his actions, which are not always big but genuine and sincere. He’d really someone that I respect and look up to. We may not spend hours together every day but he would always send random messages to tell us what he’s doing, and remind me to take care of my siblings and be responsible for my happiness.

We have not gone on a family holiday together in years but I always recalled the many adventures and fun times at the playgrounds, parks and most of the time at the beach with him. 

My father is simply irreplaceable, and I love him with all my heart.

  2. I lost my father when I was 7, I didn't even get to tell him goodbye. He had lung cancer, and due to my age they tried to sugar-coat the situation as best they could.

    Treasure the time you spend with your loved ones.

  5. My deepest condolences to your dad. I too lost my dad a couple of years back. He may not say how much he loves me but he lets me feel his love with the way he took care of me. I know how losing a loved one feels I wish I could give you a hug because we had the same experience but I lost mine about three years earlier than you but the pain still remains. Don't worry your dad is in a better place now.

  16. Condolence. My dad passed away back in 2005. I just set my mind that he is still working abroad. I sometimes see him in my dreams. Sometimes, I talk to him in my prayers like he is just on the other line.

  24. My dear Sunny, I am so terribly sorry to hear about your Dad. It is so painful when you lose a parent, and especially when they die young. My own Dad was 56. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family at this difficult time. You are a strong girl and I know you will get through it, and you already take care of your family. God bless you. Love Linda xx

  26. I feel you. I also lost my grandma to aneurysm and I grew up with her so it was really hard to take. Up until now I still get teary eyed recalling. I cried so much reading For One More Day of Mitch Albom. It's really true that we should always take care of what we have and I know it's corny or cliche but we should always tell and show people we love them.
