In Heaven

I still don't have the words for this blog post...
but some how, some way, and for some reason I don't understand...
...my Dad is now in Heaven.


To give a brief recap of events:
I got a late night phone call on Sunday, December 29th saying that something terrible happened and due to that my dad was on life support.  CV and I were actually out at a bar celebrating his cousin's birthday when I got the call.  We immediately jumped in the car, packed a quick overnight bag and drove 5 hours to Michigan to make sure everything was okay.  

We arrived at the hospital around 3am the following morning...
...and my dad let go and went to Heaven less than 12 hours later.


We (along with my sister & brother) stayed in MI for the next four days to attend the funeral, spent a miserable NYE in a hotel, (not to mention that it was CV's birthday) and had my Dad's memorial service on January 3rd. 

It's been the toughest/saddest/hardest month of my life...
...and I'm not sure TIME will make things any better.
As he will ALWAYS always always be missed.


"Death leaves a heartache no one can heal,
Love leaves a memory no one can steal."

I'm so sorry to hear about your loss. Losing a parent is so hard, especially this young in life. I lost my Dad two years ago and I have to say that time will definitely help ease the pain. Memories that make you sad now will one day make you smile ;) Thinking of you.
