My Dad, an exceptional human being, will be dearly missed. Within my memory, my Father will forever live on. He created over his lifetime this unique and everlasting gift to me. A gift that will forever be capable of being called upon to come alive in my heart, my mind, and my spirit. I am so blessed to be called his Daughter. Our entire family now grieving, will be sustained by the many fond memories that exist today because of him. I have to believe that his last lesson to me was his most graceful acceptance of his final journey. A journey that has led him to a well deserved place of loving peace.
