I'm not going to write some pithy upbeat message right now. At 8pm my step father died.
We'll spare details on how & why since that not the point.
A WWII veteran, Father, Grandfather, Husband, and
man to be respected for an eternity, a man to be considered a mentor
and example to how a true man should be in all aspects of life, by any
child or adult that had the pleasure to be graced by his presence. While
not my biological father, I am proud to have called him family and will
miss him deeply.
Sure I'll write more after emotions settle but I'll always honor how he & my mom celebrated EACH wedding anniversary each month with a flower for her.
