Holidays are a time for family. This year be sure to hug people just a little bit tighter, and be thankful for every moment you have together. You never know when it may be the last time you get the chance to be together. 

My daddy passed away on Black Friday. A light went out of our lives when we lost him. Daddy had lots of friends. Everybody liked him and told me he was always joking, or had a story to tell. His friends held a procession for him at the funeral home. The memorial was this weekend.

We didn't have a memorial sooner because Colt was finishing his CAPSTONE Project which is the final class for construction management before graduating. Colt made his presentation this week. He came home with honors in Sigma Alpha Pi and Sigma Lambda Chi. He's going to look spectacular wearing his ribbon and a couple of ropes and 2 pins.

I wish Daddy could see him graduate. My parents have been banking on Colt graduating from Southern Polytechnic State University for over four years. Daddy always encouraged the boys to get a good education and make something of themselves. 

Colt took Daddy up on his offer to send him to college. We are all so proud of Colt, and Daddy was, too. Everybody said that Daddy loved to brag about the boys. We never dreamed of Daddy passing away so graduation will be bitter-sweet.

Daddy was a driving force in our lives. He will be greatly missed.
