On the June 23rd 2018, my father, David Whittaker, passed away. He was my best friend, my idol, and it was an genuine honor to call him my father.
This episode is just me sharing my experience of losing a parent, and some of the many confusing and conflicting thoughts and emotions it’s conjured up.
As well as being somewhat cathartic for me, I hope this episode manages to be of some use to you guys as well.
UPDATE: At the time of recording and uploading this episode, due to multiple complications with the postmortem, we still hadn’t held my dad’s funeral.
We finally laid the poor fucker to rest on the 24th July, more than a month after his passing, with barely twenty people in attendance, most of whom hadn’t bothered to come and see him for years, and not to mention the half-dozen lame excuses from those who couldn’t even be arsed showing up at all.
This being the case, I’ve decided to post the eulogy that I read during the service, for no other reason than I want as many people as possible to know just how fucking awesome my father truly was! You can read it here.
