I had a big change in my life the night of my last post. One I didn't expect to happen for at least 20 years from now. My Dad suddenly passed away. We're still not sure of the cause of death but I'm thankful it was painless, quick, and he was with my Mom.
It's been a very difficult week and I'm sure things will get harder over the next year as I have my "firsts" without Dad. I'm thankful for the wonderful memories I have and that we were able to travel together just this last June. This photo is us at the Irish Times Pub in Victoria BC for Fathers Day just a few months ago. We had such a fun evening filled with laughs, good food, and great music.
I'm headed on my preplanned vacation to Maui where I'll take the time to myself to greive. Hawaii was one of my Dads favorite places to be and I know I'll feel close to him there. Last time I was there was with him and my Mom so I'll have fresh memories of him doing what he loved.
