Too Many Thoughts on Our Loss

As a reader of this space, you know that I'm never at a loss for words. However, today, I cannot corral all of the myriad things in my head to something cogent. There are too many emotions, too many memories, too many people, and too much to do.

So instead of trying to craft something, I'll instead ask for the repose of my father's soul, and peace and strength for those that love him.

Rest in peace, dad. I miss you.


  1. Mike,
    I was shocked when I got the call from my dad last night when he told me of your dad's passing. There are no words to comfort your loss and know that my thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. You dad was an awesome guy as you well know. He and your Mom had a huge positive impact on me while I was living at Grandma's and I will be forever thankful for that. I am glad that he is finally at rest and free from his awfull disease. I have a very vivid picture of him kicking back, smokin a stogie, playing cribbage up in heaven.
    I will see you soon.
    Cathy Sidders

  2. Cathy,
    Thank you so much for your kind words. You have no idea what they mean to me and how they impact me, and you are very sweet to share them with me.


Please feel free to include any thoughts you may have. Know, however, that kiddos might be reading this, so please keep the adult language to yourself. I know, for me to ask that language is clean is a stretch...
