Dad, I love you

As many of you know, my father, Dr. Osama Abdin has passed 10 days ago on the 27th of April 2019. He passed peacefully in his ward bed at the hospital he was admitted at, on March 31st. My father's suffering with Parkinson's has ended and I believe he is now in a better place enjoying his afterlife with his parents and loved ones in full health.

I have passed from the constant grieving and crying phase a couple of days ago as I kept my mind busy creating art for the game development. I have to stay strong for my mom. My father had spent all his time and money to educate us. He wanted to stay working until his last breath, but aging didn't do him well. Caring for him the last 8 years made me feel that he was my son not my dad, specially the last couple of years he was my little baby. Parkinson's made him lose the ability to eat by himself so I used to feed him. He was a very nice person and his loud laugh will always be remembered. All the people whom attended the funeral were telling me that they would miss his laugh. The funeral was massive, thousands of people came to the cemetery each with a memory of how he treated their illnesses before his retirement.

I would like to ask you all to go to your parents and tell them that you love them. Go hug them. Make their lives easier in every possible way. This is what helped me cope with his passing, that I always told him that I loved him, always hugged him and kissed his forehead. And now he's not physically with me anymore, I can still send him my love through prayers and caring for those he loved. I will always check on his friends and loved ones here.

Dad, I wanted to afford a better treatment for you, I wanted to do many things for you, I wanted to give you the world. I am so sorry I could not do it by myself.

Rest in peace.
