On November 22, 2014, ten days after my 30th birthday, my heart shattered into a million pieces when my dear, sweet, loving father passed away suddenly and unexpectedly.
My dad was the best person. He was kind and gracious and positive and enthusiastic. He was accepting of people who were different from him and he was truly interested in hearing everyone's stories. He loved so many things and he gave his all to various hobbies and organizations and people but somehow made it all work. He was not a world traveler or a big risk-taker but he is one of the few people I've ever known who I can say absolutely lived his life to the fullest. He loved, and was loved by, a staggering number of people.
I miss him every second of every day and I would give anything to have him back. I am so lucky that I had the world's greatest dad in my life for 30 years, but it was much too short.
I want to be like him, and honour him with everything I do for the rest of my life.
