On Saturday my boss William Andrew Blanchfield passed away. It took this to make realize what these men truly mean to me. I hadn't realized how much they influenced me and what a part they played in my life. Bill will be forever missed, and the office will not be the same without him. My life will not be the same without him.
I could go on and on with stories, but I won't. I will say that Bill didn't have a mean bone in his body and would go out of his way to help anyone. I will always remember the afternoon deep in the middle of our journey, Bill knew I was very down... he went out and bought me this beautiful potted flower to help cheer me up. That was the kind of man he was. He knew how hard we worked to get where we are and he was so happy for us. I am sad that he will not be able to meet the babies.
I will miss the candies he occasionally left on my desk, his sense of humor and wit, and his wonderful stories. Please rest in peace my Uncle and my friend, you are missed. Not a morning will go by that I don't think of you as I walk through the office doors, not a day will go by that I don't remember you as I pass your office.
On a happy note, I am 99% sure I am feeling the babies move and it is AMAZING. I can't wait until Gabe can feel them too.
On another sad note our cat Ozzy is very very very ill. We are having to force feed him and give him an IV with fluids. I sure hope he pulls through this, I stinking love that cat, he had this once before and made it through, lets just cross our fingers that he can again. As Gabe says "he is our first born, and he has to stick around to meet his babies." I love you Ozzy!
