Missing you, Dad…

I know I’ve been rather unavailable here lately guys, and I apologize. It’s been such a difficult few weeks, I just haven’t had any energy to post – nor desire, because I knew what I’d be writing about…

On March 21st, I lost the first man I’ve ever loved in the world – my father. He died after a lifetime battle with Crohn’s disease, along with a lengthy list of complications and other health issues. His body had just had enough, and could not hold his bright spirit any longer – he was taken home into the loving arms of God.

I am grateful to say that he went peacefully, surrounded by the people he loved most in this world. Hillcrest Hospital also did an amazing job of keeping us all comfortable that day, and I am just beyond grateful for all they did for our family. It was a beautiful, albeit incredibly sad, experience.

Dad, it’s not the same here without you. Thank you for a lifetime of memories and life lessons, you will stay with me always until we can one day meet again…
