The past couple of weeks have been tenuous and emotionally difficult for me and my family. We experienced the loss of the Swenson patriarch which completely blindsided each and every one of those in and around his circle of family, friends, and anyone else he had contact with over the course of his 78 years of life. I'm struggling to deal with the loss, especially since he has been a pillar of strength for me personally since the birth of my children and loss of my job over the year, with weekly phone calls that helped me make sense of it all and move forward in life. I want to post a tribute with photos and more to honor his contribution to the family and my personal life journey, but for now I need to take some time to reflect and join hands with others saying goodbye to a wise and wonderful human being.
