    Ah, my sweet, sweet Colleen. I am so very sorry.

    All I can say is that you are the daughter any parent would want…and I know your father was so proud of you. You brought him much joy and love and the deepest and profound satisfaction that, in you, he gave such a gift to the world.

    Please, take comfort in knowing that.

    God bless him and you and your family.

    i really have no eloquent words. my thoughts are with you.

    i have been following your vigil and dreading this post. but throughout all of it you seem to be assuring all of us something that reminds me of a phrase in hebrew that says:

    “Chazak, chazak, v’nitchazek (be strong, be strong, and may we be strengthened).”

    and that is all that is going through my mind for you right now.

    really, i wish for you my best in this worst…

    Col, I am sooo sorry to hear about your dad’s passing. I had no idea. Big Andy K was such a big part of my life growing up. I will forever cherish all of those memories, especially all the summers I spent with your fam in NC. My sincere condolences to your mom and the rest of the family from me and my family. I am here for you if you need anything my friend. xoxo


  8. We love you and we’re thinking about you & your fam.

    The picture is wonderful. He was a handsome man with his beautiful daughter. I know you’ll miss him. For what it’s worth, that picture, and your love of your father, makes me want to work harder on my relationship with my daughter.
