BAD NEWS

My Dad died today, just after my visit. I probably won't be around for a while but I have a few things scheduled to go up without me. Thanks for all the kind words I know your hearts will send me. He was 96 today.

Patti, I'm so sorry. It's been a little more than six years since I lost my dad, and I still catch myself thinking that I'm going to ask him about something. 96 years is a long life, but it's never long enough. Deepest sympathy to you and the rest of your family.

My sympathies, Patti. I lost my Mom a year and a half ago just four days short of her 96th birthday. We can only hope we have those genes.

We'll wait for your return.
