A Heartfelt Thank You!

I hope you are all having a wonderful weekend!
I wanted to take a quick minute to make a personal post.

I want to THANK EVERYONE who was kind enough to send cards to my dad. 
You will NEVER know now much those cards meant to him and just how much he enjoyed EACH and EVERY ONE that arrived for him.  He was amazed that people from all over the world thought enough of him to send cards, Christmas and well wishes.

We were so very blessed to be able to spend the holidays with our family & friends, Thanksgiving, Christmas and the New Year.

Heaven received its newest angel on Friday, January 7th when Dad left us to be with the Lord.
My mom, Glen, my sister and I were all with Dad when he passed.
While it breaks our heart that he is no longer here with us, we are comforted by knowing that he is at peace and no longer suffering.
We were So Blessed this last year to be able to spend the time we did and we are so grateful all the memories that we've been able to celebrate as a family. 
God gave us a miracle - we spent the holidays as a family.

We plan to have a Celebration of Dad's life early this summer. 
Dad wanted to celebrate with friends and family once he recovered and beat his cancer. 
He was NOT going to give up - even at the end.
So, we intend to honor his wishes and have a celebration in his honor.

I can't THANK YOU all enough for your kindness toward my family - for your prayers and well wishes.
You will NEVER know how much that kindness has meant to our family this past year.

God Bless each and every one of you for your kindness!
