Farewell, Sweet Man

This morning my father-in-law died after valiently fighting lymphoma for over 13 months. We accompanied him as far as we could in his transition. The staff at the hospice were loving, and incredibly comforting.

We, his family, miss him. There is a vast emptiness in our hearts.
