In loving memory...
There is no nice way to write this post so it will be what it is. Most of you who read my blog already know the tragedy that struck our family recently but for those who don't, I am saddened to inform you all that our dear Geordon, my husband and partner, my son's father and everyone's friend passed away suddenly here at home on February 11th. Geordon was just shy of his 47th birthday by 3 weeks. Geordon lived his life exactly the way he wanted to. He never let anyone or anything stand in his way. Although he has passed away and at such a young age, I can assure you all as his life partner that he lived a very full life. His was a life of adventure and a constant pursuit of happiness. Geordon had many goals he wished to accomplish and I am proud that at such a young age, he had already accomplished them all! There are not many alive that can claim that. Our family is saddened and stunned by this sudden loss but we are all managing pretty well. As his health over the past 5 years has been fairly poor, we made it our goal to always ensure that whatever Geordon wanted to do - we did! It is for that very reason that we are all left with no regrets or unfinished business with Geordon. We are left with only happy memories and the best stories. Those who had the privilege of sharing their life with Geordon know that to know him was to love him. Never has there been anyone else quite like him. He was an amazing person who could find humour in any situation - even when everyone else found things to be less than amusing, Geordon would be in hysterics with laughter. I think that is what we will all miss more than anything else - his laughter. Geordon and I become obsessed with our goats quite quickly and our herd became his greatest pride. It is for him that we will somehow find the strength to carry on with our plans. We may be one important man short here but we all know in our hearts that he is with us always.
We love you Geordon and miss you more than we ever thought possible.
XOXO, until we meet again. ~ Angee
