You passed away today Dad and finally were allowed to leave the shell of an existence that was forced upon you. I wish I could’ve bullshited about football with you one last time but I’m glad you were allowed to pass on. You’ve set up your family to continue to pursue lives full of happiness but know that I’ll be thinking about you every single day for the rest of my life. I’ll do my best to keep happy thoughts of you in my head, take care of Mom, and make sure Matt doesn’t do anything stupid. I cannot emphasize enough what you meant to me: you were the best father I could’ve asked for. I sincerely hope the atheists are wrong on this one and you’re allowed to be in a place like heaven where I’m sure you’ll continue to watch over your family, sports, and probably find some work to do. Rest in peace.
