My father passed away last night. It is very hard for me to say much right now. He was my hero - the one whom I wanted to be proud of what I do. We shared a very close connection which grew stronger in recent years. It is a loss unlike any other - devastating, confusing, unbelievable. I feel it in my gut as much as my heart. His integrity, and single minded devotion to his family is inspiration to me and his example something to live up to.
