Per Grahn 9/9 1931- 24/8 2014

My dad died a couple of weeks ago and was buried last Thursday.

He had a bad heart and received a tripple bypass operation in 2010.

He died from a heart attack coming home from shopping. This usually included stopping by for a beer at a small restaurant at the mall where he would chat with some friends. He was found outside of his house where he had lived for more than fourty years. A place he cherished and loved.

Not a bad way to go I suppose. The last we spent time together we ate a chicken dinner, his all time favourite  dish, and had a good time.

I got along well with my dad, so I lost more than a parent. I also lost a  friend.

Bye dad,

and thanks.

En fin fyr, din far, håber at hans sidste tid var god. På mange måder er det jo et privilegium at kunne blive boende hjemme, selvom man er gammel og selv rende i supermarked osv.

Det lyder som en fredfyldt afslutning, håber du også er ok :)

Det var gået tilbage med energien for min far det sidste års tid, men nu døde han midt i sin hverdag og det tror jeg var rigtigt godt for ham :-)
