One week ago we lost my father. He was diagnosed with brain cancer in September and just 5 short weeks later he was gone. My sister and I knew something was wrong at Callie's baptism, but we thought it was early onset dementia (My grandmother passed from Alzheimers)we never thought it was a tumor, or cancer. We never thought he wouldn't be around for another Christmas. Just like that he is gone.

My sister calls this picture "The Nucleus"
Dad and Callie meeting for the first time
My parents divorced when I was 10. Growing up I had 2 dads, John (who passed in 2009) and Dad. Now they are both gone. My heart is heavy with grief.
She has been such a joy during this time. She is a true Gift from God in more ways than one. My dad adored her. She has his eyes I think.
