I am still grieving for my dear Dad who took his own life 2 years ago, thinking he had dementia. He was 85 and a great Dad and my best friend also. I know life will never be the same again. There is a big hole in my heart and so miss my Dad.
I often think also what if I had done that. Could i have done more and if only,if only he had gone to the doctors . Also at times hurt and confused as to how he could have done what he did.
