Saying Good-bye

Easter 2008

Taking a blogging break to say "good-bye" to a great man.

As some of you may know, my step-father had been having health problems for a while and it's with a heavy heart that I have to tell you he passed away this morning.

He'd been living with dialysis and heart issues for the last few months and on Wednesday morning he had another severe heart attack while at home.

After two days in ICU we said "We love you" for the last time and he went to be with our Lord and Savior.

The next few days will be filled with lots of tears, hugs and yes, laughter.

He always was making everyone laugh at any situation and we can't celebrate his life without laughing ourselves.

I hope all of you are doing well and I'll be back to visit when we get back home.

For now, I'll ask that you pray for peace for my mother who will be struggling to deal with life on her own again.

Thank you.
