My world is a little quieter....

....but sadly, it's a little emptier too. My father-in-law passed away last night at around 9 p.m. Tony and I were able to spend some time with him earlier in the day and I spent a few more hours with him in the afternoon. He gave me one last crooked smile and quietly slipped into a morphine induced sleep to finally end his sufferings and go on to be with his beloved wife and brother (who passed away earlier this year). Despite his rough exterior, I knew he loved me (all of us) and we did have a special bond. He will be deeply missed by us all.

Oh, this is very sad news. There's one thing to know its coming and then another thing altogether to have it finally happen.

I'm glad he is at peace now though!
