Very moving. Family is so important. It is important to write down our memories of our families and what we have learnt from them. Their stories are our stories and they should not be lost to time. I have similar strong memories of my father who died when I was 23. This is how I have described my father's passing:

"The body seeks refuge in coma;
organs fail as the days tick by
and hands switch off machines -
a flick here, a click there,
that's all it takes,
not much,
to enable the soul to pass
to its existence beyond,
accompanied by the love
and gratitude of hearts
enriched by its touch."

May you find comfort in the enrichment your father gave you.
