Sad Day

My dad. I’m at a loss for words.

His life has not been easy and he has been the root of a lot of heartache in my own childhood. I have distanced myself emotionally for most of my adult life for that reason.

He suffered with MS and in the last two months his health declined rapidly with strokes and cancer. The whole family has been close and supportive. My mom, older brother and I got to be there for his last breaths and it felt special. Dad and I had a few nice conversations beforehand and that felt nice.

Father’s Day, just a few months ago…

Me and Dad. Rest in peace, Dad.

    There is so much I wish I had done differently, but I am so proud of my Zoe girl. Love those photos.

    Zoe, I am so very sorry for your family’s loss. So many times when I was heading out for a run, I’d hear an ambulance close and think of your dad and add him to my perpetual running rosary. XO
