At some point in this #snowday my kid FaceTimed dad at work - because he was ready to play & watch #HarryPotter - so he needed to tie his tie. Dad gave him instructions & I couldn’t stop laughing at the lengths they went to do this. All was done then #ByeDad#loveYou 💜💜💜💜💜

Loss is loss is loss.....
Grief takes on a new meaning for me this week as I say goodbye to my father.
My father taught me compassion, unconditional love, how to nurture, how to have fun and be lighthearted...even through the tough times.
He never criticized or compared or made me feel like I couldn't do stuff just because I was a girl. In fact, if you came to my house when I was young you'd see my Dad doing the dishes and my sister and I cutting the grass.
The only thing he said to me during my divorce was... "be strong". He of all people understood how difficult marriage could be. And although he made the decision to endure, he understood that compromising yourself and living a half life wasn't for everyone.
He was my link to all that was good in a human being. Blessed am I to have had him as a father. #bye#amillionkisses#angel#willmissyou#byedad#blessedbeyondmeasure
I said goodbye to my dad yesterday. While I'm completely heart broken that he is gone, I'm so grateful I was able to drop everything and spend his last 2 weeks here on earth with him. He was the strongest person I know and heroically battled cancer for four and a half years before he was called Home. He will be missed by so many here on earth, but is now at peace, no longer in pain, continuing on with the next chapter of his journey.
My dad is my hero, and has been my biggest supporter and cheerleader through this life. I have him to thank for so much of who I am today. I caught the travel bug from him at a very young age thanks to the many family road trips we took around the U.S. He stuck me on a pair of skis at the ripe ole' age of one (I just cried then), but my love for skiing and snowboarding was sparked. I'm so grateful he passed down his love for sports and being active... he never missed a single soccer game, basketball game, track meet, band or choir concert, or school event... and he always was the number one fan. He was always creating adventure and shenanigans for my sister and I, and our friends. I followed in his footsteps with being obsessed with nature, animals, the north shore of MN, and agate hunting. He always encouraged me to chase my dreams and passions... and showed me what dedication, persistence and hard work looked like.
Swipe to read a little more about my dad.
A celebration of life service is scheduled for Wednesday, January 29th at Kehilat Sar Shalom (2734 Rhode Island Ave S, St. Louis Park MN) with a visitation at 10:00 am with the funeral service at 11:30 am and a light luncheon to follow. Rabbi Stan Farr will officiate the ceremony. All are welcome to attend and celebrate my dad's life. Memories, prayers and condolences can be communicated on our caring bridge site (www.caringbridge.org/visit/marknelson2020). Our family would like to thank the team and surgeons at Virginia Piper Cancer Institute and Allina Health Hospice.
He will never be forgotten and will always be with me in my heart.

아빠는 많은 분들의 위로의 배웅과 함께 좋은 곳으로 가셨습니다.
힘든 시간이었지만 바쁘신 상황에서도 찾아와주셔서 함께 해주신 많은 분들께 감사드립니다.
이제서야 마음을 추스르고 아빠를 기억해봅니다.
아빠의 젊은 시절은 참 늠름했네요.
그 동안 투병 생활 하느라 고생하셨습니다.
고단한 삶을 살아내느라도 고생했습니다.
이제 좋은 곳에서 다른 좋은 분들과 함께 즐겁게 지내고 계세요.
잘 추스른 마음이 가끔 울컥하지만 우린 그래도 꽤 잘 해내고 있습니다. #byedad

He called me and wanted to talk about something.. I ignored his call - I was doing something and figured I'd just talk to him in the morning. I never got a chance, he had a heart attack 2 nights later. I wish I could go back in time and answer that call, I'd tell him I love him and that he was the greatest Dad I could ever have asked for. But I can't, and I'll now forever remember that chance I had to talk to my Dad one more time that I passed on #restinpeace#byedad#illrememberyouforever
Some of your favorites and some of mine. This year had its share of heartache but I found so much distraction and support right here. Instagram kept me focused so I could get through the sad times. Thanks so much for all the comments, likes support and overall positive vibes. I can’t say it enough- thanks Jessica @reefrainaria because without your support and encouragement I’d still be saying “so what’s Instagram anyway?” #goodbye2019#cancersucks#byedad
