For those of you close to me, you know that my father passed away recently.
He was such a fun, loving, joyous, and optimistic person, and I was so very fortunate to have such a wonderful father. I can't help but feel that the world is worse off without him.
We were lucky enough to get a few extra weeks with him at the end of his life, and he was able to say some goodbyes. He was surrounded by loving family when he left us.
