Last night, my dad passed away very suddenly and unexpectedly. He was only 48 years old.
He had come home from work in a great mood, he had a good day. He helped my mom wrap my 4 year old son's Christmas presents, and was having a blast himself playing with the huge Batman toy they had got him. He got some water and then went to his room, sat in his rocker and turned on some TV. He wound up falling asleep (like he always did). After 6pm, he stopped snoring, and my mom went to check on him, only to find him not breathing anymore.
My mom's a small woman, and couldn't get him out of the chair to do CPR. She ran outside screaming, and a stranger dropped everything and came in to do CPR. Another neighbor called the paramedics, and mom called me. I rushed over as quick as possible, only to find my daddy laying on the floor with paramedics all around him trying to revive him. I couldn't stop screaming for my dad to please come back to me, for dad to please start breathing again, for the paramedics to please never stop trying to bring him back. But it didn't work... They rushed him by ambulance to the hospital and shocked his heart 5 times on the way. The Chaplin and doctor came in and confirmed my worst nightmare. My daddy was really gone. His heart failed him :'(
I don't even know where to start. I am doing this campaign to help raise money for my dad's memorial, and to help my mom so she doesn't lose their house or get utilities shut off because of no longer splitting everything with my dad. I don't know how much any of this costs, but I know we need help. Please, share this with as many people as you can, and thank you to anyone that can help out :'(
