    Don't know if this is the right place, not quite thinking straight at the moment...you see, at this time yesterday afternoon my Father died of what it is thought to be a heart attack:cry:
    Went through his normal daily routine and at approx. 4.15 headed inside for a Beer, went back out side to sit down, poured himself a home brew, and it was the last thing he did. My mum found him sitting in his chair about 20 minutes later with his beer sitting on the table untouched.....he didn't respond to anything, she called the ambo's and the paramedics arrived within minutes and worked on him for about 40 minutes before declaring that he was gone...probably before they arrived. My mum rang me and I arrived 15 minutes after they did..:( fingers crossed for the best, but new he was gone...
    My Mum and Dad would have been married 50 years on the 26th July,His name was Melvin James Little and to all, relatives and friends,young and old was simply called 'Jimmy', nobody dared call him Melvin!! I don't recall any of us ever calling him 'Dad' it was always Jimmy or Big Jimmy.....Miss You "Jimmy", hope your having that beer you missed here!

    Man, I'm so sorry for you. I know exactly how you feel right now, as I experienced the same thing 2 years ago. My father died in 2006, until then apparently totally healthy. Had a heart attack in the evening and was gone, only 63 years old. I wish you all the strength in the world to get through this. Look after your mothers, she'll be the one who had the biggest loss. Take care!

    At least he didn't suffer Wayne, however his method didn't allow you to say 'goodbye'. My condolences to you and the families.
