stop all the clocks

Leonard Ackerman 1951 - 2016

My father passed away this weekend. My daddy-o, my friend, my hero.
The strong man who made me a strong woman.
Who taught me to throw a ball, and shoot a gun, and let me play with all the power tools in the barn.

He hung the moon for my children. They loved Papa without end, especially my oldest who has been one of his best confidants and partners-in-crime since the moment he was born.

The stories are rolling along with the tears as we celebrate this man and grieve for ourselves.

I'll be back in this space as soon as I'm able.

Be well everyone. Be kind. Be grateful. Be mindful that time is fleeting.
