On the 9th of June 2022, my dad was killed and my world view has forever changed. My dad was riding his bike, safety to him was such a priority that he even carried a laminated print out of the NSW bike road rules while he rode. Despite my dad being a safety conscious rider the driver of the offending car swerved into the shoulder of the road and killed my dad.
I am fluctuating between shock, disbelief and complete heartbreak. My dad was fit and healthy. He was the happiest I had seen him in my entire life. We had so many future plans that included him and I don’t know how to carry on through each day knowing these future memories have been ripped from me.
Not only have I been planning a funeral for my dad but I have also been liaising with the police and coroner. His funeral is this Friday and I don’t know how I will make it through the day. I have written a eulogy but no words seem to be able to sum up the amazing man he was and the protection he bought me throughout my life.
Further, as his senior next of kin I need to clean out his home. Every item of his I hold in my hands brings me a flood of memories and grief. Every time I smell him or see a photo I feel like I will break.
