One year anniversary

I thought I would make note of the one year anniversary of my Dad's passing. The one year anniversary is just two days away. I can't believe that a year has passed. My Dad fought bravely for 1 1/2 years against a very aggressive lung cancer. For anyone who has witnessed someone endure such a tough battle to survive, it is life changing. The struggle was mentally and physically exhausting. Time does help heal the pain that we all went through as we watched him slip from our sight. Time will continue to help us heal and move on.

My Dad is at peace now. I miss him everyday. If you are reading this please have him in your thoughts as we approach the one year anniversary.

I am so sorry to hear about your dad. Please know we will keep you and your family in our prayers at this time.


P.S. The day your father passed away was the day my son was born. How interesting...
