You may have noticed, I haven’t written in a while. There has been so much to write about but the words don’t always flow so freely.
As some of you know, my father was diagnosed with Esophageal cancer last year and the fight has been long and bruising. As too many of you know, unfortunately, life doesn’t stop when someone you love is facing their biggest foe. You still have to go about the business of normal even though you are saddled with the challenge of trying to be supportive and a good daughter.
My father,Danny, was released this morning from the pain that has racked him for months. His spirit is unshackled and free to find adventure once again.
He truly lived a full life filled with ups and downs. He got to fulfill dreams of flying airplanes, racing cars, traveling and having a home. He was a bit restless some of the time and always looking to the horizon. His journey led him to find everything that mattered the most, his family. He was surrounded by love from family and friends. He’ll live on in his daughters, grandchildren and great-grandchildren.
On behalf of my Mom, my sisters and the family, I’d like to thank everyone for their positive thoughts, prayers and support that we have received over that last year and a half. We are forever grateful for so many gestures great and small that we have been gifted.
I love you Dad.
