I got the phone call and knew before I picked it up what the call was about. My stepsister said that my stepmom and her were out of the room - she was talking to the nurse and my stepmom was in the bathroom. We had been saying for a few days that he was waiting for all of us to leave. My brothers and sister and I said our peace with him and went on home and my stepmom and stepsister were still there.
My Dad was not just a good dad, but a good guy. He taught me a lot and allowed us to follow our dreams and guided us along the way. He will be missed by many and remembered with a smile.
