Special Surprise

March 2, 2017

Writing about this is certainly emotional.  Maybe because it was one of the last times I saw you or because it was you and Shane sharing a Dad-Son moment.   I remember it like it was yesterday. But really it was only a couple weeks ago.  I was busy in bed applying for jobs and updating my resume and Shane had to go get an oil change.  He came back to the house and you were with him.  Shane came into the bedroom with a bag and kept looking up at the ceiling trying to gesture up. I said, "What? The fan? Did you get a new one?" Shane then pointed to the ceiling and said, "I got a spotlight to show off the Art you made for me." Of course it's me so I was overwhelmed with the thoughfulness and the tears came down.  Then I see you behind Shane come into the room. I hate that I dont remember what you said but you said something funny as usual and we laughed.  I then asked if I had to leave and I remember you saying "Well not uless you want ceiling all over you." With a chuckle I grabed my work and moved into the living room. Then you both started tearing through the walls like you both always did best.  It was such a sweet gesture for me but thats what you always were, sweet.  You both spent the next 3 hours installing the wires.  You were always so knoweldgable. I swear you could do anything.I'm so glad you and Shane always had these moments together when you just taught him all different things.  I came back in the room to look and asked "Is it done?" You replied, "Boy youve got another 3 hours at least."  I was shocked but you guys did rewire a WHOLE wall.  The saddest part Is Shane will have to finish this project without you but I know you'll be here with us laughing at us or poking fun at us. I never took pictures of you and Shane working but this time something compelled me to and I'm so grateful I did.  It shows how great of a father you were, always patiently teaching Shane. I can still hear your laugh and your voice in my head. I dont ever want that to go away.  Thank you for being the Best Father-in-law I could have ever asked for.  I love you.  
Love Always,
