My friends dad died tonight from cancer.
My friends dad passed away tonight at 11:30pm, from cancer. She got there just in time, and she said his eyesight was already leaving him. “I’m going, I’m going,” he said.
She was just on facebook to tell me the news, and no matter how many times I’ve told her throughout this tough journey that I’m there for her if she “needs/wants anything,” I feel like she doesn’t believe me. I have experienced death in my family, and I must say I am lucky that it wasn’t my best friend like it was for her. But there were times I stayed alone in my room, crying, throwing paint on blank canvases or painting beach scenes, just wishing I could blink and transport myself to the west coast. Time I probably should have been balling my guts out to someone else.
I hope she believes me when I say that.
