This past Tuesday, Pete's dad passed away. He had been battling cancer for almost three years (although the doctors thought he would only have 6 months!) and we were lucky to have so much extra time with him. He died at home and Pete was able to be there to say goodbye.
Saturday there was a memorial service for him and a nice dinner following. Afterward we went back to Pete's mom's house and a house packed with friends and relatives looked through photos into the evening and shared lots of stories.
He loved well and was well loved. He has been like a second father to me and I already miss him.
