As expected, but even sooner than we hoped. Farewell dear mom. You have done a better job than anyone. Thank you for being our mother and grandmother. It is time for me to put things on a hold and try to become an even better father for my children. A better man for my wife. A better person for this world, because that was who you were for so many people. Better in every aspect. I need to get my stuff sorted, and I may have to make some big bold moves.
Pike singing out (for now) …
Edit: Thank you all for the kind words. Much appreciated.
Ok. I went to California last week for work. This was the first thing that I did after weeks of making sure that moms stuff got a nice place. Busy times. Now all I want is to sail away. My fathers sailboat is ready for the trip to California. And so are we. We’re leaving after this post. Time for a long holiday, after WWDC 2017.
I’ll be back in September. Keep up the good work!
