Saying Goodbye

This is a post I never wanted to write, but if I don't do it now, I'm afraid I'll never get it out. At this point, I am so heartbroken that I simply want to say goodbye and "I love you" one last time.

He fought a fierce (and mercifully short) battle against an indomitable foe and unfortunately lost. The only comfort I can take is that he is no longer in pain. He will live on forever in his granddaughter (and other future grandchildren) and I will love him forever and a day. I miss him already.

Please donate generously to your local cancer foundations. There is so little research on sarcomas (specifically soft-tissue) and they need all the help they can get.


  1. Oh, I'm so sorry to hear that. Thinking of you & your family!

  2. I am really sorry you have lost your dad at such a young age. Look to that amazing little family of yours for strength and comfort. Know that there are many of us who are thinking of you... Lots of love, Kristin, Cory and Avery xoxo

  3. It's a shit time. I'm truly sorry. Brooke, Ian and I send our love.
