This world will be a lot worse-off if it doesn’t have Jim “Depot Dad” Everson in it.
He is a good man…a good father…and a fellow blogger. He is also a man battling the devil known as cancer.
And he’s losing this battle.
On his Facebook page yesterday, Jim said the following…
I’m sorry, everyone. I did my best.
I don’t even know how to respond to a statement like that, but I can only imagine the feeling he is going through…especially knowing what my mom has gone through over the past couple of years.
As of yesterday, Jim was back in the hospital. As of last night, he was in pain and not wanting to see any visitors, though he did have someone close to him there.
Nothing would make me happier than to be able to fly to California today just so I could meet this kind, gentle man in person.
I’m not the praying type. I’m not a religious man. But I’m hoping and praying that Jim’s time isn’t up yet. I’m hopeful that there is a higher power somewhere that will allow him to have just a bit more time on this earth…if for no other reason than to allow his two children to spend some more time with the father they love so dearly.
At the end of the day, all I really hope is that Jim is peaceful. My thoughts today are of him and his family.
