Will You Cry If Your Dad Of 92 Dies?

This may sound funny but it is actually not funny. It is my mom, her dad is 92 real age and ( 90 official age - you know what that means right? ) and whenever the man falls sick, she cries her eye out. Not that the man falls sick or the time ooo. He even still get farm were he dey go to keep himself busy.

Now the question is, will you cry if your dad or your mom at 92 dies? Or is my mom just another spoilt brat who can not cope with missing her dad.

Maybe I am heartless but sincerely I dont think I will cry. Tears may drop from my eyes but not like a kid. Mom cries and get scared anytime she hears that the man is sick even though the old man is tired of living.

i believe when a person lives pass a certain age, there shouldnt be a mourning of the person but rather a celebration of the persons life.

@ OP

your mother is just another human being with human emotions. and there is nothing wrong with her crying especially when its her father.

although, he might have been very old, i bet that there is still that satisfaction your mom gets every morning knowing that hes still there and breathing and when that is gone, you can imagine she will have that empty space in her heart.

Do you think that your mother is supposed to have no feelings for her father because he's 92??  If you think your mother is pathetic now, wait until she hits her late 60s and starts looking and acting like an old woman, you'll be the one freaking out!

People who have their parents fear losing them, no matter how old they are.  As we watch them age, we become more aware of their mortality.  Was talking to someone a couple of weeks ago whose mother is 83 and growing more frail.  He worries about  her - and he's 60!

So long as parents are alive and their children are around, so will these concerns be.  The reality is that when they are gone you feel a void, you also feel the responsibility that comes from being the next generation.  The loss of a parent isn't something reserved only for the young.

It's normal to weep when you lose, or about to lose a loved one.

Yes . . I will.

It is not about the age, it is about the vacuum that his death will leave

offcourse this is not funny, even if my mom/dad was 150 and die, I would cry my eyes out.

yes, women especially can miss their dads even if they (the dads) were over 92 when they died.

My mum was the same way. Her siblings too, no doubt. She'd let out a long sigh out of the blue and just say things like "oh I'm fatherless", "Oh my dad has passed away" or something similar. We'd wonder why she was "overreacting" since she was saying this in front of her dad's grandkids (ie us).

I dont think it has anything to do with being spoilt.

Your dad is your dad nah.
