A tribute to My Father - This month, 10 years of my life without my dad!
At that stage of cancer, my dad was having severe pain and no medicine would work on. He tried hydromorphone which stopped working, then was switched to oxycontin or oxycodone ..... I can't remember all the names of pain killers they put him on. He stopped eating or refused to or maybe both, then we were informed that he had only three months to live, and prepare ourselves for the worst. The world stopped turning!
My dad was the most loving, caring and generous man. I've been proud of him for my whole life, a real gentleman. I never heard him shouting, screaming or losing his temper. He was a very clever, thoughtful man of few words and deep thoughts. He would never talk about something only for the love of talk, but his words had to hit the point, otherwise he wouldn't say anything. Thank you mum for having great taste and choosing such a wonderful, special and unique dad for your children and a good hard-working husband who respected, loved and treated you so well.
I love you dad but Allah loves you more, you worked hard for your family and your departure was and still is a great loss. You will always be remembered fondly. May Allah grant you peaceful and eternal rest. Amine!
