I know this is 4 months later but u just wanted to say that i miss my dad and he was an funny, caring and loving he will be missed dearly everyday i go to text him saying i miss him and love him sometimes i wish he could message me back saying that he misses my family and he'll never let us out of his heart. The day before my dad passed he told me he was going to be alright. I just want to thank the hospital for doing as much as they could. Yesterday was 4 months without my dad.
