my dad...



April 2, 1952 - April 9th, 2008

my dad was funny and nerdy and sensitive. he was the world's most frequent "pun" maker. he loved hockey and hunting and camping. he was stubborn and often kept things to himself. he was outgoing and friendly and embarrassing. (the whole time we were in ireland on a family vacation he insisted on speaking in an irish accent! there was no doubt in anyone's mind that we were tourists.) my dad loved to argue and challenge. he loved movies and music. his favorite dvd was The Last Waltz. he and i didn't always know how to communicate, we had our ups and downs, but i love him and will miss him very much.

Cassie, apparently I am too far out of the loop these days. I had no idea. I'm so sorry. Peace and blessings to you and you family. This was a sweet tribute to your dad.

dear friend,
whenever i think of you my thoughts always get around to spending time with your dad, too. the past few days y'all have all been on my mind ... i'm so sorry to hear about his passing, but my hopes are that it was peaceful, and that you three ladies are surrounded with love in these days from those still walking with you, and from our ever-present Father. much love to you and yours always.
