good bye dad




There is suffering in life, and there are defeats. No one can avoid them. But it's better to lose some of the battles in the struggles for your dreams than to be defeated without ever knowing what you're fighting for.

~ Paulo Coelho ~

This morning we say good bye to my dad. It is always good to see people we know and love and we will enjoy having a chance to talk about Dad and his life with them.

Tomorrow I'll take my sister to the airport so she can head home. Mom and my brother will be here in Tillamook and I will head back home.

We will all begin our new normal...whatever that will be.

I will miss them all.

Wanda, I'm so sorry to hear about your dad. The thing about normalcy is that it always change and the change becomes are new normalcy. I so understand about losing someone as special as your dad. Just know that I'm sending you love, a hug and big piece of my heart!
