My twin DD's have a friend at school whose father was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer about this time last year.
He deteriorated after this new year started and I just found out he passed away last night.
I can't help thinking that my girls have lost their father as well.
They have lost their father to selfishness and his desire to "be happy".
I lost my father when he turned his back on his children more that 10 years ago when he took on a new and what he thought was a more sympathetic family. (Long story. I haven't seen or spoken to him in about 12 years.)
I am in tears for my girls' friend, my girls and me.
It's just not fair.
