A Great Loss

24 May

We lost Patrick’s wonderful dad, Mike, on Saturday. Just days after spending the week with us in Indiana, he suffered complications during a routine surgery. On Friday, the Dr. told us to come quickly and we were lucky enough to be on a plane to Salt Lake within hours, three kids in tow. We were blessed to be able to spend time with him and say our goodbyes. On Saturday, Mike passed peacefully, surrounded by his family. It’s a great loss for us, and a greater loss for our kids who he loved so much. We will miss him deeply and the joy and wisdom he brought to our lives.

The obituary can be found here.
