unexpected death of my amazing DAD

On June 16th, 2017 our dad unexpectedly passed away at home with me, my brother Michael, and boyfriend c.j here to try and save him until the paramedics arrived. They did all they could for him, but it was just his time to go I suppose. Our dad was such a wonderful person. He was a spiritual,loving, caring man. He was the definition of love. He believed love could heal anything and he was right. He always tried to stay positive no matter the situation and tried to help so many other people stay positive and "in the now" like he would say. Our dad was the meaning of life....he had it all figured out and would spread it with just one impassioned word...LOVE. He was all about family and wanted so bad for our family to all communicate and be the way it was when his mom, our grandma was alive. He would put family before himself despite any rough patches he had himself. Our dad was on social security and disability for a long time due to major surgeries he had done on his neck multiple times. He didn't have any life insurance policy or anything like that so all the help we can get would be so appreciated beyond words of expressing. Our dad deserves a nice memorial service and we will do what we can to give him that. Thank you all so much. We truly appreciate it from the bottom of our hearts and his.
