My dad died on last year 8/9/11. Dads death was unexpected caused by an aneurism and we were called later that day by an uncle and flew to nsw to see him, the next day we decided with the advice of doctors that he had no chance of life so had to cut life support.
I am having trouble with the first fathers day and first year anniversary in 1 week of each other. My brothers decided to go to Sydney for the anniversary but I decided against as I know I will be a wreck anyway and didn't see the point in getting flights and accommodation to cry more. I think I might be regretting my decision now. - did I do the right thing?
Every where I go has fathers day plastered everywhere. DH's parents are on holidays so they can't even take my mind off it for one weekend.
How would you celebrate a life lost? I just feel like crawling in a hole for the next few weeks!
