Devastation and Sadness...

My dad passed away July 1st...totally unexpected. He died from cardiac arrest after a minor elective surgery. The week before he had suffered a heart attack, made it through major spinal surgery, angioplasty and made it through a major infection....
So we are in mourning,but it still doesn't seem real. We are with Scott's family until next week. I'm sure it will become much more real to me than.
I have so much to share,but will wait for a couple of days when I am more focused. When the doctor's told my mom and I that my dad had died the only words that I said was, "it is God's will"...
I still can't help but wonder why...but I do know that we were so lucky to have him in our lives for as long as we did. He will never be forgotten.
I love you Dad.
xoxo
Jenny
