It's not fair.

My dad always told me that science is the most important thing. How's a teenager? I didn't want to listen to him. I got pregnant early and had a baby. I'm not like most women. I worked in a grinding shop and in a car repair shop. I always wanted to be a truck driver, but because of my son, I gave up my dream. At my dad's persuasion, after a few years I returned to adult high school. He was happy and proud. Soon after that, it turned out that Dad has metastatic cancer. I've been with him every time I see him and do chemo, give him injections. Dad said that as long as he's alive, he'd want me to get a bus license, get a little closer to my dreams and do what I like. To make me a driver. I signed up for a course. I even took him for a ride so he could see how I was doing and ride with me. He was cracking with pride. Two weeks before the exam, Dad suddenly died. I passed the second semester with only Fridays, the exam for the first time, but I can't enjoy it because it's gone. He won't see my Fridays anymore, nor will he ride with me in the driver's cab in his new job. And instead of helping him, as always, to wash the windows, I'm now cleaning his graveyard monument.

I'm sorry about Dad's death. Maybe he's looking at you through a hole in the cloud and smiling looking at you!

You had a good father. He could still see you as a trained person. But he won't see, it hurts you. People, remember, there's a price to be paid for everything, sooner than later. Unfortunately, understanding this pr... commentary is too late

He still is. There's his soul that sees and surely still bursts with pride. But think he's sad too when you cry.

He died and is dead, no souls, no dwarves, no stars.

It's good that you were with him to the end. You had a good time. Just like Daddy wanted to pursue his dreams and raise his son well. Hold on ;)

sad:( but such a life... I was 12 years old when my daddy died always when I was doing something, trying to get something like a high school diploma, a license, etc. I thought he would be proud of me and he was always crying, and most of all I missed him... please comment on my wedding :(

When people come to terms with death and have the teachings of this world in... they're starting to think. Your father told you to study, and before he died he told you to do what makes you happy.
