In memory of my Dad!!

So I have not posted anything in many weeks!! Sorry life gets a little crazy when you lose someone as close to you as your father. My dad was diagnosed with Liver Cancer just a few months after Mike and I got engaged in 2004. He worked really hard to fight it off, but 6 months ago started to lose the battle. I remember growing up and hearing all of my friends tell me how "cool" my dad was, my answer was that they didn't have to live with him. I used to follow him around as a kid and wanted to be just like him, I turned out more like him than I ever realized. I have a stronger testimony after this that the Lord really does lighten our burdens in times of need. I am so very greatful for the testimony of eternal families that my parents helped me build!!

I was so sorry to hear about your Dad's passing! Our prayers have been with you and hope that things go well in the upcoming months - especially with little-Gaulke on the way. We miss you guys!

Wow, I can't imagine what it is like to lose a parent. I can't think about it. Our thoughts are with you. I remember you Dad and all your family was very gracious to me when I got to go to their house for dinner one time when Dave was out of town. I was pregnant with Charlie and very vulnerable. I will always remember how kind they were to me.
