in loving memory

Some of you may know and many may not, that my sweet Daddy passed away on August 17.  You might remember this post from back in April, 2011 from when he had surgery to remove a brain tumor.    That was just part of the two and a half year long struggle he had fighting cancer.  

At the beginning of August we got the news that the cancer had spread and he had very little time left with us.  That time ended up being even less than what we expected, but we were all thankful to be able to be with him when he passed and thankful that he isn't suffering anymore.  

This loss has been great.  My heart is broken and I struggle daily with questions, emotions and grief that I never expected to have this early in my life.  But, to put it simply, these things happen.  No one is immune from pain, sadness or hardships, and even though sometimes I get angry about it or feel sorry for myself and my family, I know that God is in control of all things and He has reasons that I cannot understand.  

At some point in the future I may be able to write more about my dad and his death, but for now I will leave you with a slideshow that was played at the funeral full of pictures of my Daddy with those closest to him during his life.
