Beautifully and touchingly written. I am sure your father felt the love of all of you as you surrounded him and chatted with him during those last moments.

Powerful and moving. Incredible descriptions.
You wove this story like a beautifully poignant tapestry. I am still 'seeing' it.

I can't wait for heaven either! I love the image of 'breath' all through this. One of my favourite lines was: "A cacophony of memories swarmed through my mind, each one briefly and painfully asserting its presence before blending with all the others." Well done!

Beautifully written! My dad too died of cancer. I remember the bedside vigil.
