This blog is a place where I usually chronicle my happy exploits with my two little ones. Not today. In order to explain my absence for the next week, I wanted to share the news that my father passed away yesterday after what was truly a heroic, three-year battle against death. He wasn't ready to go, but his body had done all that it could.
So my next week is going to be spent giving my Dad a proper send off, having talks about why our Papa had to go to heaven and remembering the man who was dancing at my sister's wedding only ten days ago.
He was a pretty remarkable guy.
I will be back in July.
