My dad has been unwell for several months but after surgery and rehabilitation he was on the mend and was improving in his health and independance.
This morning my mum found him unconscious on the floor but the ambulance team could not revive him. He appears to have suffered a massive abdominal aortic aneurysm, after complaining last night of a sore stomach. He would not let mum take him to the hospital last night.
I will miss the father of my youth, who was a wonderful role model and loving Dad, who always had a smile on his face.
Rest in peace Dad, and say hi to Uncle Bob when you see him.
