An amazing man departs

I would like to take time to say goodbye to my stepfather who just passed away this weekend.  He taught me compassion, spirituality and patience.  I feel fortunate to have known him and been a part of his life.  I know now that he is free from the Alzheimer.  I will see him again, at some point in the infinite.  Today I prepare my bags to fly to Virginia and visit with my mom and brother. Death is a road we all must travel, despite that knowledge the feelings of loss and sorrow still hang heavy on my soul. Good bye Ernie, I love and will miss you.  Thank you all you taught me, not just through your wise words but through your actions and character.
