Funeral Expenses

On March 23 2020 it was a normal family day, I’d just come back home from am errand and went to eat dinner with my family. After I went in my room to watch a movie not long after around 6:40 I heard muffled voices then loud gunshots run across the whole house , then I go out to see blood covered around my living room and see my dad on the floor , my mom screaming and crying , my sister got shot but was sitting down looking at our dad , same with my 3 year old brother who witnessed the whole thing. I did my best as I called 911 and turned to my dad and applied pressure to my dads wounds as my uncle and aunt came to help. I kept applying pressure telling him to wake up everything is gonna be okay and trying to hold him up as he was covered blood , it felt unreal , soon cops and ambulances came and we were escorted from my house. They took my sister to the hospital, not my dad, he had died in my arms and died to protect his family. To those that took his life know That im praying on your downfall and hope that something worse happens to you. To those that knew my father I want to thank you, thank you for the friendships that he had with you and the memories, to his soccer buddies I thank you for playing with him since he loved the sport so much, and watching it as well. To those that he worked with I thank you for knowing that he was a hard worker that was all about his family , there was times where it felt like I never saw my dad because of how much he worked to support us, now it’s my turn. I’ll promise that I will work hard in his place. To his family I’m sorry for disappointing you, I’m sorry that I couldn’t do anything else, I wish that it would’ve been me not him, I’m sorry to his siblings and parents who heard of the devastating news. I’ll be in his place, I’ll work hard with my family and get through this, I won’t let you down. I’ll miss my father very much.
