Just as an update, my friends - at 2:54am on August 13, 2019 my father passed in his sleep.
He is scheduled for cremation at 1pm today and services will be held on Friday the 16th. I'll be leaving for my drive to PA on the 15th.
It has been a bit of a struggle with mixed emotions. So sad to have him gone, but also relieved that he is no longer in pain.
I'm glad I got to see him one last time and captured the images above.
"Give her a handful, there, kid!" (one of my dad's favorite sayings.
