‘My dad wanted to be cremated. Then he died, and I didn’t know how badly those ashes would haunt me.’: Daughter ‘appalled’ by father’s ashes, keeps them ‘hidden away’ in plastic bag

“The idea crumbled me. Knowing he was at the crematory, and knowing it’d be his turn. Was I eating lunch when they loaded his body in? Was I nursing my twins? Even talking about this is so shameful. His ashes sit in a cupboard. I know they’re there. But I don’t want to see them.”

‘My DAD was in the delivery room when I birthed my first child. ‘It’s okay Molz, you got this!’: Daughter grateful to experience ‘remarkable moment’ with father after losing him 3 years later

“I looked up from the bed horrified my dad was actually watching this whole thing. He could have snuck out. But he chose to stay. And I chose to let him. The power of those decisions would not be fully understood until years later. My dad died when the baby girl he witnessed come into this world was just 3 and a half years old.”
