Hi, I lost my father two weeks ago due to a ruptured abdominal aortic aneurysm. He went down the road to pick up some wine around midday and never returned. It must have been nine hours until we heard from the police. Of course, during this time we were constantly calling his phone hoping that he would pick up. He used to do this a lot so we just figured he would be back sometime soon - maybe he just decided to have one or two pints at the pub. Then the police called and told us the bad news ... they found the car at the local park and; he was dead. Apparently when they found him the car was still running. He was stationery in the car park. I had the unfortunate time of having to identify his body - slumped over the steering wheel. It's only been two weeks, but the nightmare keeps replaying over and over in my mind. We saw his body the next day at the coroners and they told us he died from a ruptured AAA. I still can't believe it.
