"In an odd way, I'm most thankful for being able to be with my dad, holding his hand as he passed away this year. I'm thankful that with the schedule I have, it worked out that I was able to be there with him at that moment. It's something you'll never have back, time with your loved ones when they're gone. It's a real honor to be with someone as they pass away, certainly your dad. As his son, I felt it was a blessing to be there with him."
