My Dad has passed on...
« on: September 05, 2006, 02:48:26 PM »
My father passed away today. He was 82, and lived a good long life. I am going to Delaware to be with my 3 older brothers, and their 14 kids. We will celebrate his life, and it will be nice to see the entire family together again.How nice it is, to see God's plan in action!
. Another reminder to cherish those who are still with us. Life is a precious thing. I am so very grateful and thankful that I have my older brothers and their kids to still share life with. It will be fun remembering all the good times.
I know my Dad is now with Kandi. And Heaven just became a little more "wild" today. Pop's diet just improved A thousand per cent. That lucky bastard LoL. Pop used to tease Kandi about her "perfect toe nails"...I can just hear them both laughing their asses off. It's a beautiful thing....
Wishing you all love today. This love comes from a little deeper place from my heart than usual today. Go ahead, hug someone ...what the hell!

Hi Jeff,

How sweet it is to see your reaction to the passing of your father.  To think that he and your wife are now partying together is something that most would not have the strength to see and to celebrate.  I am so glad you do, and that your family is going to celebrate his life with this gathering.  Best to you, and please let us know when you are back in the swing of things.
