Hi @cnma,

My dad died too, but he is not who I relate to your dad. I relate my grandpa who also passed due to a brain tumour. He did not suffer for years which I am great full for (and sorry to hear that you, your dad and your family did suffer for 5 years) but he still declined much like your dad did. He started forgetting things and not making sense; he was much more emotional than usual, and he was in a lot of pain. It was an awful thing to watch, even though I did not get to see him that often as I was at school, and he was in a hospital 1 hour away.

I wish I had held his hand more, and been less protective of my own emotions, and focused more on him. But you are right, and we do have to keep living no matter how tough.

Thank you for writing this.
