"I could write a book on the lessons, good and bad, that I have learned from his life and his passing. Maybe one day I will, but in the meantime, I am just sad. I will miss this man."

And you'll be sad for awhile..............When I was 18 my Mom died. That evening when I had returned from Berea I found my Dad far and away sadder than I had ever seen him. We sat in their bedroom and he said, "You'll never have a day you won't think of her." He was right of course and I thought of that when he died just a few years later. Now, 40 years out from that time, every day I recognize how really true that is and how much else I learned from him. Funny thing........I have lived longer on this earth than either of them and yet I still have many times I wish I could ask their advice and feel the love it often contained.

For those of us who were blessed with great parents, losing them is always hard but as you know their memories will soon fill the heart with a wonderful memories but there will always be that tinge of sadness which is at it should be.   

You're well loved here Brother but you know that too. Karen and I send our best thoughts to all of you.......and never apologize to me again...................
