Our Teddy Bear's Journey

Theodore was born with renal failure. This is his story.

Miss you, Dad

on December 13, 2012

13 years ago today, my dad died from liver cancer. Miss you every day, dad.

This is a terrible picture, from about 1997, I think. I got some sort of award from the Governor (Branstad, the first time) and this picture was taken at the Capitol.

He would have made such a great grandpa – he loved kids! I’ve thought often over the last year what a blessing it would have been to have him with us on this journey.

Here he is shortly before he died, holding my nephew Will.
