Rough week.

Blog has been quiet over the past week because my father passed away Tuesday morning. I got to say goodbye when he was still with us, so I'm grateful for that.

He was a great guy and I'll miss him very much.

UPDATE

Wow, very moved by all the good wishes. Thank you.

Funeral's today, flying home tomorrow. At some point, I'll get back to politics.

I would like to extend my condolences to you. I lost my father almost 20 years ago, but because I loved & respected him immensely, I understand what you're going thru. While you won't be able to physically share things with him going forward, you will find solace in remembering his love and guidance when he was here, and feel his embrace, of years gone by.

May God bless you.

Sorry about your loss - I seem to miss my Dad more the more time goes by. If he was a great guy and knew that you thought so, that counts for a lot.

Take your time. We'll miss you but you need to think of yourself and your family and your dad right now. I bet he was proud of you!

I don't think I have ever commented, But I have enjoyed, perhaps overly so, your continual evisceration of the vacuous points of the opposition. But regarding fathers: He was the greatest man I have ever known, and if I end up half the man he was, I will be proud to carry that legacy forward. You are already a great man, and I am sure he was extremely proud of you, as we all are. You have my great sympathies about your loss.

I grieve with thee.
