Rest in Peace Daddy.

"God created you perfectly."

The last thing my dad said to me before he passed.

I don't think my dad understood me very much. I'm the 4th daughter and I’ve always been kind of spacey. He was a businessman; I’m artsy. He was a realist; I’m an optimist.  We looked exactly the same (down to the gap in our teeth) but we couldn’t be more different. The great thing about him was he never made me feel inadequate. He was always supportive of my dreams no matter which direction I took them in. My dad was awesome. I couldn’t possibly make anyone understand how awesome in a blog post.

I love him, I miss him and I think about him every day.

*I don't have any recent photos of him and me together because I wanted to wait until he gained some weight.

I’m an idiot.


  1. You're not spacy. And you're certainly no idiot. You are a bright, talented young woman, and I'm sure your father recognized that. I know this will be a difficult week for you, but remember your dad will always live in your heart. My prayer is that he will rest in peace until the day we see him again. Love and prayers...

  2. Juju, I'm so sorry to hear about your father. Please know that you and your family are in my thoughts and prayers as you go through this difficult time. I wish I could be there to give you a big hug. I'm giving you one in my heart.

  3. I think it was fate that you were able to spend the last few months with him. I continue to admire your strength and courage in dealing with his sickness and later his loss. You were incredibly lucky to have one another. You're in my thoughts.

  4. You're such an inspiring person! I'm so lucky to know you
