Good bye dad!


This is a post to remember my very first best friend and mentor, my dad. He was a person who showed me that life should be lived to its fullest. He taught me to be brave, take chances and be smart. He passed away today at 7:15 pm Lithuanian time at the young age of 66 years old. He was an athlete and an avid downhill skier. I had the privilege of holding his hand until his last breath, beside my mom,my sister and my favorite uncle Algis. It was an experience I will never forget.

My dad fought until the end.He was bravest and the kindest man I have ever known.

Dear dad, you were a great family man and THE BEST DAD anyone could ever ask for. Thank you for beeing my dad, I feel lucky and honored that you chose us. My dad will be missed by many. His friends, but mostly by his closest family members, my mom, my sister, me and the rest of the immediate family. I do have one small regret that my children only have known you for 3 years. Dear Jajai ( pronounced "Yai Yai" as my kids called him) you were a funny person who spoke to us in a funny language that at times we could not understand. We loved you very much. Thank you for our future.

One day we will see you on the other side.

Until The, Love Always,

All of Us.

Spring?

What a great weekend. It's amazing how 40 degrees and a little bit of sun can feel. We spent a lot of time outside, cleaned the garage and got the tricycles in working order. Saturday we had some friends over, fired up the grill and the kids got to play some elefun. Sunday, we got in the car and headed up to Uncle Benny and Aunt Emily's for the afternoon.
