Sad day.

I am not very good at “sad.” As a matter of fact, I run from it whenever I can, but here I go…

To my father-in-law, one of the smartest men I have ever had the privilege of conversing with and the most well-traveled person I have ever known. Both of those qualities he treated with the utmost humility. He shared some of the best stories, whether it was his near death experience falling head first into a poorly covered pit toilet as a child, to his time in Ecuador, to the pride he felt for his children. I feel lucky to have known such a person, one who strived and succeeded in being a simple man of simple means, but was willing to give to those who chose to live much grander lifestyles than he. I love my father-in-law, and more, really liked him and will miss him very much.
