My youngest daughter took a bunch of pictures at Thanksgiving this year. This is the picture she took of her papa.
This will be the last picture we'll have. My dad died early New Year's Day. I want to thank readers of this blog who sent their thoughts and prayers. Please know that I deeply appreciate the support.
The last three years were one medical setback after another for my dad. He was too much of a fighter to give up, but I'm glad he doesn't have to suffer anymore. There's a lot to say about my dad, but I'm having a hard time stringing my thoughts together right now. Thankfully I have some time to gather my thoughts, write something for his memorial service later this month.
2011 is going to be a tough year. My only resolution for this year, for every year from now on really, is to be as good a man as my dad was. Rest in peace Pop.
