How did you find out that your …
… Father died today? Well it’s strange you should say that, but l was chatting with my Sister in Facebook, and she told me at 15.06 that my Father had stopped breathing, and that medical crew were checking his breathing. I asked if l should call her, no l will let you know she said at 15.08.
But l found out from my Mother at 15.29 because my Sister couldn’t simply tell me in that text that my Father had passed as she didn’t have the time, but had the time to ring my Mother and ask her to tell me?
Now my Sister has swung into action, to ‘take control’ of the situation, instead of there being any joint discussions about anything.
How did l find out that my Father died today?
“Oh my Mother rang and said your Dad is dead and your Sister is too busy to tell you herself, take care now, speak later, give my love to Suzanne and Scrappy, bye.”
Months ago, l asked myself the question of how l felt about my father dying, l didn’t know the answer. Months later, my Father has just died and how do l find out? Through a non personal phone call. It is no less surreal today than it was two days ago.
How do l feel? I still don’t know.
