A Death In Our Family

My much beloved father-in-law passed away, peacefully and painlessly, at about 5:00 am today. He was the last of our four parents and his death brings back all the pain of the other deaths, as well as its own pain.

He was a wonderful, kind, loving, intelligent man and he'll be sorely missed by his family.

Oh, Mary, what a sad year it's been for you. First your mother, then Neil the collie, then taking care of you mother's house, and now this. I hope that's the last of the sadness for a while. Please know that you are in my thoughts.

I have great hopes that this spring will bring a new collie puppy. His name will be Gordo (after Gordon Fullerton, astronaut, test pilot, and neighbor).
