Losing my father is by far the most heartbreaking thing I ever had to experience in my life. It happened all of a sudden, so no one in our family was prepared to face such a tragic loss. It has been ten years now and it still hurts. I do not think the pain will ever go away and I have learned to live with that. To be frank, I would not want the pain to go away because it reminds me that this is the reality I have to face now and I have to be strong for my father.
