6 things about my dad’s death


Dad went into a coma for 3 days and then he died.

On his final day of normal life, he got himself a haircut.

When he was conscious, he asked mom for forgiveness.

Nurses had to turn him over every day to prevent warts.

Dad stayed connected to a breathing machine even though he was unconscious.

This was the first death nearest to me. I had no idea what was to follow.
