 You may have noticed that I had quite a bit of time off last month - though Colin does such a kickass job holding down the fort that maybe not - but I figured I'd let you know what's up.

My dad died.

He passed on August 27 after a long battle with cancer.

He was initially diagnosed five years ago; the last time i lived in Saint John.


This is him back in the 70's. Back then, he was fisherman with a pilot's license who played drums and drove a mustang cobra with the hardest clutch in the world. Tell me that doesn't scream RockHead.

 

I don't think I need to explain how badly it sucks that he's gone. I know lots of you have lost a/both parent(s). I now know how you feel. Its the shittiest club I've ever been a part of.

 

 

 

I've heard all the wise words and the "time heals all wounds" and and and...it doesn't make it feel one bit better. I know people mean well, but no. "For the best" isn't that he died at 59. "For the best" would have been any of the (what feels like)  million treatments working. 

 

 

If i can give any advice, it's this: 

 

hug your damn father if you still can, and be excellent to each other.
