On Tuesday, May 23 the most amazing man that I had the privilege to call Dad passed away surrounded by his loving family. Over the past week, the outpouring of support from both family & friends has been overwhelming. I still can’t believe that he is gone but I know that with everyone’s support I will come to peace with this over time. Thank you again to everyone.
