It’s been a long week in the Rhymer household, and my family would like to thank everyone who has stopped by, called, flown cross-country, emailed, texted, facebooked, facetimed, sent flowers, cookies or soup. You have all been wonderful in helping my family fill the void left in our lives by an utter and devastating lack of Don Rhymer. In the past three days I’ve been told our house smells like a florist, a bake shop, and a bar. All of which would have made my dad very proud.
I would also like to thank anyone and everyone who came my dad’s memorial service. That day was an absolute blur, so I just sat down to read through the guest book with my mom. I was immediately overwhelmed by the number of familiar names. Some of you I haven’t seen in years, and some of you I may not see for many more years. Commandeering a blog is no way to properly say thank you, but please understand that the outpouring of support for my family is so great that I will never be able to fully reciprocate it. All I can muster is a paltry expression of my gratitude. Thank you all.
Lastly, if for some reason you are still looking to do something to honor my dad, please consider donating to Stand Up 2 Cancer. He was very fond of their efforts, and showed it by buying countless t-shirts, hats, and just about anything they sold on their online store. I have a Stand Up 2 Cancer candle in my bedroom. For those of you who don’t know me, I’m not really a candle guy.
Again, thank you. I hope this day finds you well and your family safe.
