It hurts to type this.
A week ago, my sweet Daddy passed away.
He was a superhero that beat cancer, but fighting that battle wore his body out.
24 years ago, Trent and I were making our wedding plans when my Mom & Dad called with the news.
It was Esophageal Cancer.
We were faced with the possibility that Dad wouldn’t make it to the wedding or that he would be too weak to walk me down the aisle.
Well, my Daddy was not only there, but looked like he always did with hardly any visual effects of the cancer.
In fact, there were tears from everyone when he walked me down the aisle and gave me away.
And his esophageal cancer went into remission.
Then 10 years ago, my dad developed a secondary cancer, Multiple Myeloma.
So, once again, he put on his armor to fight the bully.
He completed treatments and a stem cell transplant and once again – kicked cancer’s butt!
That’s right – he was declared cancer-free!
But all that fighting wore his body down and the past 2 years, we started to see that decline.
But I count it all a blessing because according to the statistics, we got over 20 years of time with him that we all cherished.
He will he remembered as a loving man who impacted many lives, always there to make you laugh and share his love of music with you.
We are rejoicing that he is no longer in pain, no longer suffering, and was surrounded by us all when he passed, which the hospital graciously bent the rules for us!
Thank you to my friends and followers who prayed for him and my family as we faced these past few months.
Now for this week’s Welcome Home Sunday Week 78. We are so excited that Tanya from Dans le Lakehouse is joining us. Definitely head over and check out her post!
