    My Dad... committed suicide in 1999 aged 35. I was 15 at the time.
    I had not seen him for 4 years. It happened after another failed relationship at the time apparently. I suppose losing your kids and then that on top of a lot of other problems just pushed him towards that choice.
    He was a man with a lot of problems who did a lot of bad things to a lot of people and at one point I hated him and felt relief when I learned he'd died. I never went to his funeral and his ashes were scattered by his sister.
    Despite that there isn't a day that goes by that I don't miss him and regret I couldn't be there for him. I wish so much that he was here now and I could ask him what to do. If he thought one day that I'd want him back in my life I know he'd still be here now, that's what breaks me.
    RIP Dad xx
