one year

Scot Andre Bemis
December 22, 1966 - January 22, 2012

Today marks one year since I lost my dad, hero, friend, and mentor to cancer.
You'd think that because I love to write, I'd have come up with some sort of special blog post by now.
Unfortunately, there are just no words. 

Instead, I made a giant photo collage to try and convey just how much this man meant to me and so many others.
I hope you enjoy...


I love you, I miss you.
Always.

P.S. Thank you Team Bemis
Each and every one of you. 
My family couldn't have made it through this year without your love and support.
