My dad, Joseph Elmer Weiss passed away from a stroke on December 31, 2018 with his wife and his children by his side. He had suffered a stroke 10 years earlier, and I watched him struggle with the loss of communication due to his aphasia over many years. We all miss him, and I continue to monitor my health and my cholesterol, as his stroke was a result of a blocked carotid artery. We can all focus on our health and wellbeing. Moving more and eating healthy fruits and vegetables to ensure we all thrive. I miss my dad, and I know that he is the reason I walk. He inspired me to do more for others. And he still does even though he’s not with me.
