In Memoriam

"And the doors are open now as the bells are ringing out
Cause the man of the hour is taking his final bow
Goodbye for now."-Eddie Vedder

My dad took his final bow yesterday and ended his five month long fight with brain cancer. He was brave, he made me laugh right up to the end. Love you, pops.
