This is Dedicated to My Father

My father died this morning.

He was sick for many years, since I was in high school, but he recently became very ill and was in and out of the hospital quite a few times in the past 8 months. This morning, his heart stopped and he finally passed.

My dad was neither a vegan nor particularly environmental, but he was a fabulous recycler and he loved to ride public transportation and his bicycle around town. He was always open to my ideas and was a great conversationalist, even if he didn't agree, about alternative lifestyles such as mine.

He will be missed for his wit, his generosity, his kindness, his quirks, his sweetness, and his love.

I love you, Daddy.

Oh G, I am so sorry to hear about that. I'm hoping and praying that you find closure swiftly. Let me know if I can help.
