I've been negligent from posting because my father was sick and I was spending a lot of time with him. He passed away peacefully on July 10 at home like he wanted. Our family has received some beautiful sympathy cards and Masses are being offered at my father's church at 4 o'clock vigil until 2015. He was a gentle man who loved gardening, music and dancing. The recessional hymn at his funeral per his request was "Lord of the Dance." The ceremony was special, reverent and a celebration of him and his family. I was so lucky to have him as my Daddy. My siblings and cousins will keep the promise he made to his mother to gather the whole family together at least once a year.
