Some of life's most interesting and most powerful stories are true. I've concentrated so much of my life devoting my attention to creating fiction, that once in a while when reality smacks me upside the head, it doesn't seem real. Not real at all.
My dad passed away last Saturday morning. He was the best dad I ever had. His passing was somewhat of a surprise to us, though he was getting up there in years. (Don't we all somehow seem to do that without even trying?)
Making arrangements for his final resting place has taken much of my time over the past few days and I don't have much time to write now. I just wanted to say that he will be missed, not only by my family, but the many people who came to know him--including many of my writing friends.
So long, Dad!
I'll see you again someday in that great big publishing house in the sky. (That is, if I don't get rejected.)
For anyone who might be interested, funeral services will be held on Saturday, March 7, 2009, at 10am in the Lindon 16th Ward LDS chapel located at 610 West 100 South, Lindon, Utah. Family and friends may visit at Olpin Mortuary at 494 S 300 E, Pleasant Grove, Utah, from 6pm to 8pm on Friday, March 6, 2009, or one hour prior at the above LDS church building.
