Tonight after 7 years of various treatments, setbacks, hopes, dreams, successes, trials, perseverance, fight, commitment and love for the kids and me, Eddie finally laid down his sword and stopped the fight with the kids and my blessing. He was so blessed to have a room full of special people in the waiting room outside ICU and surrounded by some of the finest humans I have ever imagined knowing. So many came to say their goodbyes and share their love. Our children were awe inspiring and beautiful and heartfelt in saying good bye to their dad. As I told Dylan, she is not unfortunate that she only had "daddy" for 9 years. She is the most fortunate that she got to have a daddy like Eddie for 9 years. He was the best and will be remembered always by all of us.
I pray that he is at peace and watches out for us always.
Please give us our space tomorrow and check back here for the time and place of the funeral services.
We love you all.
Lorin, Dylan and Matthew (and Eddie because he is still with us always)
