My dad died

How do you start a post about your dad unexpectedly dying? It's not fun and I don't like it. I got a text from my mom on July 1st saying that my dad was having some chest pains and they were at the hospital getting checked out. Soon after my sister called to tell me that Dad was going in for emergency surgery. The aorta going to my dad's heart was detaching. There was only about 10 minutes between the time they told me dad needed surgery to the time they wheeled him into the operating room. We thought he would come out of the surgery, but he never did. I drove up to UT to see my dad one more time on July 3rd. He died just after midnight on July 4th. It still seems so unreal. I miss my dad terribly. I'm glad for the testimony I have that I'll get to see him again someday. Thank goodness for temples and the promise of forever families. Love you Dad!!!
