When my dad passed, my Uncle Dean told me that although people say you lost your dad, you haven’t. You haven’t lost him. And that single comment helped me more than any other during that time. I don’t have the single right thing to say today, but I’ll miss you, Uncle Dean. Your kindness and encouragement (& humor) will continue to shape the person I hope to be. Much love to my family & friends today and the hard days to come. ❤️ Here’s a photo with Ellenor at about 6 weeks.
