I don't know how to start this, but I'll just say it. My boyfriend's dad is dying, and I don't know how to support him. We've been together for 2 years now, and are very serious about each other. (we live together and have cats) So, he's back home basically taking care of his dad until he passes
I am 2k miles away "holding down the fort" as he would say. The thing is that I'm kinda sad that I will never get to meet his dad. We're really serious about each other and he wanted me to meet his dad too, but his dad was getting worse with cancer, and didn't want anyone to see him like that. We both respected his wishes.
Anyway, it's a little tough for me to put myself in his shoes because I've never lost someone close to me. I'm there for him hands down, I can't help but feel bad that I don't know what he's going through. I want to help him but I just don't know what I should do or say?
