Hi Ladies! Sorry I have been MIA in the last week. It has been a very emotional week for me. On Sunday January 8th at about 8 Sunday morning I received a call from my step mom. She told me to sit down. She said my dad was in a car accident and didn't survive. I broke down, screamed for my husband and cried for the rest of the day. I picked myself up Monday helped plan his Memorial service and went back to school on Tuesday to teach the kids. Today I said good bye to my dad and said hello to all the people who knew him and were able to show up for the service. On Tuesday January 17th he will be interned at Jacksonville National Cemetary with full military honors.
This time has been truly bitter sweet. He passed knowing I graduated college and most importantly that he was going to be a grandpa. I really miss my father but more than anything I'm holding up strength knowing that Rileigh will be here Friday and she has the most AMAZING guardian angel in her Grandpa.
Thank you Christine for checking in on me. I had read a few posts during the week but probably was just in a mind funk and didn't reply to any posts.
