I haven't posted for a few days. My dad passed away last Wednesday, so things have been a little busy around here. We just celebrated his 84th birthday a week ago, and a few days later he was gone. The hospice caregivers said that often happens after a birthday or Christmas when the person has seen all their family. It's like that releases them to go.
Here's a picture of him as a young man many many years ago, and a picture taken on his birthday. With him is one grandchild and the rest are great-grandchildren. We made a DVD slide show for the funeral service and the music was Glen Miller's In The Mood. Dad played drums in supper club orchestras for years in his younger days.
