I'm Kaite. Im 17 years old, and lost my dad on december 30th 2008, He was 52 years old. Well this is my story;; about two to three months before he passed we went to his doctor were he was diagnosed with prostate cancer,his doc. said "bob ill give you three choices to get rid of it or you can choose to do nothing with the consiquence of only having 2 to 10 years left in his life", well my dad being as hard headed as he was; decided not to take any of the doc's choices. Two months later my dad died of a Massive Heart Attack. Unexpected. The worst parts about it are this, Well my mom moved back down here after living in nebraska for a year (for her personal issues), She came a week before christmas of 08' which was two weeks before the death of my dad. Anyways, So Five days after christmas He passed.(great present huh?) yea right. Try the worst day of my life. And to make things worse, he died on a tuesday well the sunday before that he came to duette fl. were i was with my boyfriend. about 15 mins from bradenton were me and my dad lived, he came out and spent some time with us for a little bit and left, later that night i talked to him in text's telling him i loved him and he said something that made me think he committed suicide, which was this: "bug i just wanted to tell you that im sorry if i wasnt the best father I could be and i hope that i made you as proud as i could." and i told him he was the best dad any girl could ever ask for. Anyways, so monday I tried calling him & calling him on the house phone and cell, i also tried texting him, and never got a reply. My mom also went by our house and tried to get him to answer; and the weirdest thing is that the truck and motorcycle were both there but the door was locked, and he wasn't answering the door. (By the way: i was still in duette with my boyfriend, his bestfriend kasey, and my friend koda.) So i was freakin by Monday night. Well tuesday mornin' around ten o'clock the four of us (above^) left duette and headed to my dad and I's house to see why he wasn't answering the door for my mom and the phone for me and her. So i talked to my mom and grandpa on my way to town, & my mom asked me if i got to the house before her and my papa not to go inside until they were there. So they got there and i unlocked the front door, and there was my dad, layin in front of the door. Well i didn't know at that point if he was alive or not, so we called the cops. Well I took off and ran down the road where my boyfriend colt later came and got me. I seriously thought i just died inside. Well Im not trying to go to far and if I did sorry, I just want to find someone to talk to & relate too. So i figure if i tell my story you'll get a better grip on my life. Well feel free to write back/reply. Thanks for stopping by(: -kaitee ;]

I am so sorry for the loss of your father. It seems you and I are in similar situations. My father died Christmas eve 2008. The Police found him on Ocean Park beach in New London, Ct. The cause of his death was still undetermined even after an autospy, Which leaves me left to wonder what happened to him everyday. He was only 56 years old, and I was 29 at the time and just had my first child. I can totally relate when you wrote about "great Christmas Present." My whole world was shattered that Christmas eve night. I was so close to my father and still grieve daily. I am so sorry that you had to see your dad laying there in his house. It must have been so hard. Your dad died just 6 days after my dad. I never got to even see his body since i live on the other side of the country. He had made it clear he wanted to be cremated, so I got his ashes in the mail. That was the hardest thing to handle. I still have his ashes on my mantle, and don't know what to do with them. He never told me where he wanted to be scattered. I just want to let you know I am here to talk and be a support to you katie. I am so sorry you had to lose your father at such a young age. It is very hard, and having a friend to talk to online really helps. Hope we can keep in touch. I will keep you and your family in my prayers. Hope you are getting some grief counseling too. It helps even though its a long process. Hope to hear from you.
