Some sad news....

I just wanted to share that we have had a rough week.. and yesterday my dad went to be with the Lord. As you can imagine it has been a very hard time for all of us. He was taken to the ER last Wed... and died Tuesday afternoon. He is the reason that I have so much love in my heart for children.. children loved him and he them. He was always surrounded by the neighborhood children and later was very involved in the lives of the boys on his high school football teams for which he was the coach. Because all of our children have experienced so much loss already in their short lives it has been especially hard watching them process the loss of their beloved "grandad". You can also imagine what it feels like for me to lose the person who has influenced me the most in my life... I really did not think it was going to be as hard as it has been. So we would covet your prayers and thoughts as we grieve...

I will share more about my daddy later....

To say 'My sympathies' doesn't seem enough but it's all I have. I'm praying for you all.
