My dad died earlier this evening. About 6 months ago he was admitted to the hospital with severe pain that wouldn't go away, and started becoming paralyzed. Eventually he was diagnosed with atypical Guillain-Barre syndrome and they started treating him for it, and he was getting better, until about a month ago, when he started getting worse again. Tonight he finally succumbed. He was an imperfect man, as all men are, but he was a good man. He was 65 and a cancer survivor, a high-school teacher of 30+ years, a wrestling coach (he was the first coach to Tela O'Donnell, part of the U.S.'s first Women's Olympic Wrestling team in 2004), father of 7 kids, and a lot of other things. I'll miss him. If you're the praying type, please keep my mother in yours, she's going to need the help more than I do.

so sad, I'm 59 and I can't hug either of my parents now. Wish I had hugged them more while they were here.

Memories are the only things from which humans can never be separated. Hold on to the good memories.



Everyone, if your parents are still with us, give them a hug. Children become adults, but you're a parent until you die. We want you to hug us.
