I want you to know what a privledge and an honor it was to have you share the last 10 years of our lives with us. As you know, I haven't had a relationship with my father for the last 22 years, and to have you as that role model is more special to me than I could ever express. I hope you know that, you ARE my father. Thank you for being that to me and accepting me as such. I love you and have always felt loved in return. I'm thankful that you've shared the growing up of our children, we've had some experiences, haven't we, and all the times you reminded me that children are a joy and I always asked, WHEN? I see now, with Aydens arrival, it's a circle. We all miss you, but know that you are getting the best care possible.
Sending lots of hugs and love always,
My father in law passed away this afternoon at 4:30. He lived a long and amazing life. He served his country in 3 wars flying airplanes, and raised 6 children while married to the love of his life for 64 years. One can't ask for much more than that! His legacy lives on in his children and their children and their children... He is at peace now and while we are saddened at his passing, we are thankful for the time we had with him. He was an exceptional human being.
Thank you all for reading all my crazy rants, sending prayers and hugs and generally just being my friends. I love you all for that. :-)
