Today is a big day for my family. After 27 years with the Philadelphia Fire Department, my stepdad, Captain Mike Daly, has retired.
When Mike first announced his drop time from the Fire Department four years ago it seemed so far away. It didn't even seem possible that this day would come. After his surgery for Stage 3 Prostate Cancer last year, we all couldn't wait for this day to come.
I know both my Mom and Mike have mixed feelings about retiring--those feelings of "What now?" but I'm so excited for them. There are lots of big changes happening, and I'm excited to see where it takes them.
