The greatest thing that ever happened to me was my father. I wasnt actually his son by blood but if I could have anyone else as my father nothing would top what I had with him no fame fortune or anything offered would ever make me want anything more than him. I was standing outside my house on a Tuesday I had just got off of work when I got a phone call from my mother saying we had no choice but to take my father off of life support or watch him suffer for the next month or so of his life. i Know when somebody says to you I dont want to be on life support it sounds simple at the time. I watched my father take his last breath four hours after I took him off life support it made me want to take his place more than anything else on earth. It hurt bad very bad I felt guilt anger most of all I wished for him to just give in. Nobody wants to see thier parent suffer a horrible death. The one thing that all of us can remember is that our parent did not suffer any more than what we would have wanted to ourselves. I live on everyday wondering if I would have waited just a little while longer if he would have jumped up and said something. It kills me to wonder. The thing that keeps me alive is knowing He wanted me to live and that he loved me
