This morning my family called me and let me know that my dad, William E. Mansfield, passed away as a result of his recent struggle with cancer.
He was 84 years old.
In April I was able to spend some time with him. My brother, Ken, my sister, Joyce and my son, Colin were there, too. Joyce's husband and daughter were with us as well.
I am deeply sad and also grateful.
This is our last photo together.
Sad for the obvious reasons, grateful that I made a deep connection with him and we have shared many wonderful years as father and son.
I will miss my pops, Bill Mansfield.
My son, Nate, greeted his Grandpa in eternity today.
Amazingly kind is the God and Father whom we all worship in my family.
