As many of you already know, my father passed away in Canada on Jan. 29, 2011 at 87. My wife and I flew to Toronto from Orlando for a celebration of his life on Feb 4th. It was quite a departure from the ocean breezes we are used to with a blizzard the day before and temps in the 20's F. I jokingly told my old man to hang in there and not to go anywhere until spring but he wouldn't listen. When it's your time, it's your time, plain and simple. I love you anyway Dad! :-) Below is a link to my memorial web page for my mother and father with photos, my tribute, condolences and stories. The world was truly a better place with their unconditional love in it and I will miss them dearly.
My father bought this 2 piece heart shaped urn when Mom passed away in 2007 and now they are both together again. True love never dies!
The Abominable Porch Men. Nephew Steven and my brothers and I toasting Dad with a beer and a brandy. BRRR! Dad would have approved!
My brother Dan's supportive neighbors and brother Larry on the right. Dad used to sit with them on the front porch and "trade opinions".
Ann Landers once said, “Inside every eighty-year-old is a thirty-five-year-old asking, ‘What (the hell) happened?’” My father had a young, alert and inquisitive mind even though his body finally failed him. He always tried to learn new things, expand his knowledge and would enter a debate about anything that he was passionate about. Dad never hesitated to tell you what he thought. He was a rabble rouser and never missed an opportunity to push your buttons with a smile on his face.
Life is just better in Cape Canaveral, Florida! We don't sell snow shovels :-)
Have some Fun in the Sun!
