Another Death in the Family



A picture taken by my uncle Scott Rutherford a couple of weeks ago of Dad and Rebecca

My father died this week after a short bought with cancer. I will miss him, he was a good father and great man. He went fast. He was diagnosed with Cancer in Late Novemeber and Jan 27th he took his last breath at 3:55pm (est) surrounded by family at home. Not many people can say they died at home surrounded by family. Most of us will die in a hospital somewhere.

My dad was a artist and a college professor. He touched a lot of people during his life. He was beloved by many.

The funeral is Saturday at 11am in Standish, MI.

I'm doing okay, all things considered. I miss my father but I was prepared for his passing so I am not distraught, sad yes. He lived a wonderful life and that should be celebrated.

What to say? Another one of those crummy,hard things in life. When my father died in the hospital the preacher came and the first thing he said was " Lets give thanks for Mike's life." Somehow that was really comforting for me. May it comfort you too, my friend.
