My father died this morning at St. Agnes Hospital in Fresno, California at 5:20 a.m. I am temporarily going to suspend writing and use this blog as a journal as I contemplate what happened. I am lost.

At 5:20 in the morning at St. Agnes Hospital in Fresno, California my father died. He was dealing with a brain tumor. My world has been shattered as this is the second parent I lost almost back to back. I am going to suspend some aspect of writing for now. We have to plan a funeral and there is a lot to do at home. In a couple of weeks or so then I will continue to write about some of the topics I was pursuing. Now I plan to use my blog as a journal and write about my Dad’s life, his illness and dealing with my emotions. I am in a complete state of shock. But I need to help my family during this time. My family comes first during this time.
