Remembering Dad – GCC #24: Father’s Day Special: Our Journey Through The Passing Of Our Father, Stephen Burton w/ Rob Burton

This week’s release is an especially emotional & important release for me (Mike). Today marks Father’s Day in the UK, so I wanted to release something about my father, Stephen Burton, who passed away in May of 2013 of oesophageal cancer.
This episode includes discussions of death of a family member and some details about their death, so please be warned of this sensitive content.
I am joined by my brother Rob (who is 17 years older than me) and we discuss how Dad raised each of us and how he was when he became older, followed by how we both found out about his cancer and how it affected him before his death. We then discuss his death itself and how it affected us and what to do moving forward.
As I state in the intro, this is a very meaningful & quite emotional episode for both myself & Rob but we wanted to show that it’s healthy to speak about these matters and if anyone is going through something similar and wishes to chat, I am more than happy to discuss any of these things in a completely confidential way. If you feel as though speaking about this would be helpful, please contact me in the social media links, or via email, below.
