    Advice from General.

    I will spare most of the details since you do not need them. My father was told that he only has a short time to live, but he can pull through.

    I went to see him, and we talked like normal, but he looked at me with the most serious face I have ever seen him and said:

    Please, act normal in front of me. I have to deal with your mother and sister acting differently, the last thing I need is my own son to treat me different. This is my only request.
    I want to act as if nothing happened, but he should know it's not that easy. My father and I are pretty close, and we planned to go to Hellfest in June. Now, I don't see that happening.

    Should I try my hardest to do what he wants me to? I don't know if I should or shouldn't.

    Honor his request, if these final few moments of your fathers life are going to be spent in a good way then the right thing to do would be to so what he wants. I wish him all the best.

    The worst thing a dying man can get is pity, honor his wish for the most part, but have a chat with him as well. I'd tell him that I'd treat him normally, but do remember that he is your father, and it's only human and natural to be hit hard by the news. As your father, he does still have a responsibility to understand and sympathize with how your family is feeling, even if he is man that'd prefer not to be pitied. There's always a butter-zone between pitying him too much, and letting him slip away as if nothing happened, both ends being a terrible result. Talk with him, and find a combination between treating him like a normal person, but also accepting the gravity of the situation.

    All the best, Aborted.
    I am the seer in the dark,
    the vagabond of yore,
    valediction.
    I am the sum of all your parts,
    and proprietor of all.
    A miasma,
    the conclusion,
    blackmonger of Inlé,
    valediction.
    Synapses fray,
    my form now vivid,
    as torpor sets and blood grows tepid.
    With every ounce of flesh now offered,
    I hold your corpse within my coffers.
    Knitted cells now split asunder,
    stand alongside me brother.
    Take your place amongst my Owsla,
    we march at dawn now and forever.

    The best thing you can do for him and you is to treat him normally. It might be painful for you and it'll always be in the back of your mind that he has a short time but you'll feel good knowing you two we're still as close until the end.

    Serious talk with Hannibal.

    But to you and @Aborted and @Scotia, I called him and after giving him the answer that I came to, which was to treay him as he wanted and he will get through this, his reply was,

    I wish you didn't inherit the pussy talk from your mother, son.
    Now it's normal.

    Thanks for all the support too. I thank everyone for taking this seriously and not joking around about it.

    Wow dude.

    Death is the realest thing.

    Honor his request, it's the only thing you can do. It's the only thing you must do.

    And don't shed tears.

    I'm not going to hit you up with that "he's in a better place" bull. No. Fuck that shit.

    He is immortal to you... your thoughts... your memories...

    "Religions are, by definition, metaphors, after all: God is a dream, a hope, a woman, an ironist, a father, a city, a house of many rooms, a watchmaker who left his prize chronometer in the desert, someone who loves you—even, perhaps, against all evidence, a celestial being whose only interest is to make sure your football team, army, business, or marriage thrives, prospers, and triumphs over all opposition. Religions are places to stand and look and act, vantage points from which to view the world. So none of this is happening. Such things could not occur. Never a word of it is literally true.”

    As almost every has said above, act normal.
    I know that it may be hard to act normal in front of someone that is sick and looks as if he's dying, but don't let that change anything. Be who you are and have fun while doing it, let your father spend his last moments in the greatest ways with his beloved son.

    Whoa, such a deep topic.
    Act normal as it was before knowing the news, he will rest easy.

    Make the last of the days into the best of the days.
    Make him feel as if life is once happy again.
    Put all the sadness aside and enjoy the last moments.
    Never regret what you do in life.

    Not as though he cannot walk. Only in his 50s.
