Edit: We have decided to establish a scholarship in my dad’s memory for OSU College of Education students. Please consider a gift to my dad’s scholarship fund. Gifts can be made to the OSU Foundation at osufoundation.org or mailed to OSU Foundation, 4238 SW Research Way…
A (fun) list of things to do.
“We’re already here? That was quick!”
Today, August 26th, I am 24. I was 23 when my dad died.
"Who cares if one more light goes out? Well I do."
It’s like my perfectionism has faded and been replaced, entirely, by the malaise of confusion.
It’s like taking Damian Lillard off of the Blazers and saying, “Fear not! Now Anfernee Simons will have more room to operate!”
I am so glad you all are here today to give him the big funeral I know he would have wanted. I am so sorry you are here so soon.
See all
