Default My Dad, My Mentor, My Hero...

My Dad has left us at Gods' calling. He was a Great man and a Great Dad. I learned so much from him. He had spent about a week in the hospital. He had a blood disorder called hemochromatosis which destroyed his liver and he developed an infection throughout his body causing kidney failure and fluid issues. In reality he died of a broken Heart. My Mom passed away about 2 1/2 years ago and alot of him died then. His last wish was to come home so he could go to his final home with Mom. With the great help from Hospice we were able to make that happen. He was home for 2 days and left us at about 7:00 p.m. last evening.
We're gonna miss you Dad!
