Today, me and my father were out picking vegetables, (trying to get a few dollars) when my father started gasping for air. I yelled, ''Daddy! Are you gonna be ok?'' And, still gasping, he replied, ''Sweety, I want you to tell your mother something,...'' And then, Alright, give me a second, gotta blow my nose, ok i'm back. And then, he collapsed on the ground. I ran over to him, but he was already gone. :.(
I'm guessing that he died because we have been starving lately.His heart probably had failed, also. My mother is out in the feild right now paying her respects to his body....i will NEVER forget this day. I must sign off now and pay my respects also.
