And so it goes....

Dad passed away peacefully this morning. He put up quite the good fight. So, we're all heading out to New Jersey tomorrow. I'm taking my running shoes....I'm sure I'll need the soothing I get from my runs. In the meantime, my heart is broken.

May Peace go with you! A death in the family is always hard, but the running shoes will at least give you an exit to find your peace.

My dad is 85 (in May), I expect I'll be going through this in the next few year's too.

God bless you and your family, thinking of you!

I saw this poem online today, and I immediately thought of you and your Dad. I know you must be so filled with sorrow that it feels it has no end.

My heart is with you.

I Did Not Die

Do not stand at my grave and forever weep.
I am not there; I do not sleep.
I am a thousand winds that blow.
I am the diamond glints on snow.
I am the sunlight on ripened grain.
I am the gentle autumn’s rain.
When you awaken in the morning’s hush
I am the swift uplifting rush
Of quiet birds in circled flight.
I am the soft stars that shine at night.
Do not stand at my grave and forever cry.
I am not there. I did not die.
