Below is the eulogy I gave last night at my father's funeral.
Six weeks represents the short amount of time that we all have had to process the news that my dad, Scott Lofgren, was diagnosed with cancer and ultimately passed away.
Over the last few days, I’ve started to try to process what has happened, and I’m grateful we had those six weeks. I was able to learn so much about my father in that short span of time and was able to see how he has impacted so many different lives around the world.
My dad was our hero in more way than one. First, stating the obvious, he served his country for 20 years and retired as a Lt. Colonel from the Army. He was also our family hero, though. Who else would take care of all the big, disgusting bugs found around our various houses? Or take care of our car troubles, which let me tell you, my sister and I have had our fair share of car troubles.
