Farewell Big Grandpa

My dad passed away on Wednesday.  While he will be missed, we are feeling a deep peace at his release from suffering.  Big Grandpa, as Amelie called him, found out his cancer had come back one year ago. Despite the physical limitations cancer created for his body, he spent the last year doing the things he loved... spending time with friends, family, and nature.  Services will be held Monday afternoon.  Until then, we're spending quiet time together just remembering, breathing, and letting our hearts shine light to guide him on is way.  

The preciousness of human life lies in our heart's ability to love.  My dad loved so many of us and was loved in return.  Thank you all for your support during this difficult time.  The gentle touch of friendship is holding us in a warm embrace.
