I’ll be honest.
I’ve been avoiding this, writing on here I mean.
Although I do talk about my life here, I think there are some things that i’d rather not share with anyone and everyone, things that are meant to be kept sacred.
…but then some things are hard to ignore, and I feel like I need to address this before moving on. So here goes:
John’s father passed away recently. It was unexpected, and it was awful, and heart breaking. There was, and is, deeply felt sadness.
But there was lots of love too, and family. We flew back for the funeral, and it was unbelievable, the amount of people that were there to honor John’s dad.
So many people.
And not just family and friends, but others whose lives had been touched in some deep way by his existence. he managed to do that a lot.
He was a man with a big personality, who loved life, and was continually generous to the people he loved. He was always that way with me, from the beginning, making me feel like family right away. I was really looking forward to calling him father-in-law.
He was greatly cherished, and he’ll be deeply missed.
….and that’s all i’d like to discuss on this topic here. I’m ready to move forward and post some not-so-personal stuff. But it didn’t feel right to go ahead without mentioning it, without honoring a man worthy of honoring.
Talk to you soon.
