So very sad

Oct 5, 2011 7:35am

My heart is aching as I update this to ask for prayers. On October 4th around 4:30PM my Dad ended his 18 month battle with cancer. He has left a hole in our family.

My Dad and I took a 3 hour ambulance ride to his home he built to retire in (next year) on 9/26/11, I spent 4 days taking care of him with my Godfather Mike D. My Godfather (his best friend of 40 years) never left his side and other family members would help out, my older brother arrived on 10/3/11 from Texas. My Grandma was holding his arm, my brother and Godfather both at his side when he passed away. Then they flew my Dad's flag at half staff after he passed away......

Here is his caring bridge :
