Celebrating a Great Man's Life



On January 2, 2010 my father and hero, Norman R. Sant passed away. While this has been a trying time on myself and my family, life goes on and the "one day at time" saying tends to hold true to assist in my grieving and healing. My father was a great man who loved family and serving his fellow man. He served in local government as a mayor, city councilman, as well as chairman of county and state committees. He always took time to teach, give advice, and share how he learned from life's mistakes. He taught me my work ethic, how to be responsible, accountable, and to do what is right regardless if it is the popular thing to do or not. In general, I am the man I am today because of him. Although I am 27 years old and have sustained to bury both my parents, I am strong because of their lessons, sacrifices, and eduring love. Despite a void or emptiness that cannot be mended or filled, I will press on and continue to remain true to their lessons. I would ask anyone that reads this to give your parents or guardian a big hug, and thank them for all they have done and continue to do.
