I Cried All The Way Home

By reading the title of this post one would think that I’m one of this little piggies but, alas, I am not. Let me also preface this post by stating that Angela and I have two completely different views of making things public. While she is more reserved and private I’m willing to let people […]

Tink…fssssh…clop

Never, EVER underestimate the power of my sloth. No, no. Not the animal (although a very slow, superhero sloth would be cool). I mean my lackadaisical approach to writing a post for my own blog. You have no idea how many times I’ve started a post on my iPad, continued it on my phone, worked […]

Dad Passed Away Two Years Ago

It is strange when I think about my father’s death. It only happened two years ago and it feels like forever has gone by. So much has happened since then – I’ve moved back to Northern Virginia, changed jobs, Tobey passed away. It all seems to be a blur when I look back on it; […]

Father’s Day

We’re off to Arlington to see dad today. It is Father’s Day, my second one without him. It hasn’t gotten any easier trying to cope with this. All week long I’ve felt myself starting to well up to cry whenever I think about it. I’ve been jealous of all the people wishing other’s Happy Fathers […]

After this post, I’ll be writing my regular article – life will slowly be returning to normal. Thanks again […]

Waiting For The Funeral

My dad’s body will be flown into Dulles tomorrow. From there he’ll be transported to a funeral home in Herndon where he’ll lay and wait until his funeral. My mom still cries and my sister still utters apologies for not being able to bring him home. With the exception of the funeral we have very […]

Goodbye, Dad.

I would like to thank everyone who has either left a message for me here, via email, on my cell phone, on the various forums I frequent. Both I and my family appreciate your thoughts and condolences. It has been a very, very difficult 24 hours. From learning that my dad’s health was so fragile, […]

Pray for my father.

Even though I’m not really religious, I have no problem asking those of you that are to pray for my father. And for those of you that aren’t then I beg that you wish him well. I was at an interview today (that I nailed) and I got a phone call from my sister. I […]
