For those that know me how has it been (been out of touch, that’s my bust) and for those that don’t I wish you all well.
I received word yesterday afternoon that my wife’s father passed away while doing some yardwork over the weekend. It has been a very rollercoaster-esque emotional ride over the past 24 hours with a big flooding of support from both friends and family.
I will be out of town this week and returning on saturday. We will be bringing him back home to Michigan, where he had asked to be buried in the event that something happened.
If you can spare some prayers, please pray for my family, especially my wife. Over the past 18 months she has lost the three relatives that she was most close with in her Grandmother, Mother and now her Father. I have to be as much as a rock that I can but I was very close with him. A great man and a loving father was taken from us too soon.
If you have things you need to say to your folks, I ask you to address them sooner than later. I am happy knowing that there was absolutely no question of how much my wife meant to him and how he felt about her. We will miss him dearly.
I wish all my friends good luck at this years event, and wish that I could be there with you all. This will be the first year since B3 that I have not attended the yearly tournament (B4 to last year is my current streak). It pains me to think that I can’t toss you guys out of the playing area, but I’m sure that will be covered. To all my old skool ST brothers, west coast marvel buddies, the entire East Coast Community, and the rest of SRK staff, I’ll miss you guys.
Thanks for listening to those who click the thread, and keep us in your hearts and prayers if you could. The next few months will be very tough for my family and appreciate all the support that we can.
