He must've been a good,honest,hard working guy to be taken at 69. Same age my father died. He waited till after midnight,Oct 10th,mom's birthday,to give up the ghost. He didn't want her to have a bad birthday.
The loss of a father is a hard blow. I know it was for me. Everytime I here a scotsman playin amazing grace on the pipes,it gets me. They're not just fathers,but can be great friends as well in many hobbies & such. He also brewed beer,so I guess brewing is my way of keeping up some things in his memory. Something like that for you in the Genny cream...

Didn't see this until now. My only remaining grandmother passed away a few months back and a very good friend died suddenly at 54 a couple weeks before Christmas, one year short of his retirement, leaving his college age daughter, who I'd seen grow from a small child of only five or six years old. What comforted me during that time was the happy and sometimes side splitting memories, particularly in the case of my friend, that still remain. I hope you find comfort in the good memories as well!
Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience. - C. S. Lewis, English essayist & juvenile novelist (1898 - 1963)

Thank you, everyone. I really appreciate the kind words. I'm back home now, after driving 700+ miles yesterday.

Leaving his house yesterday was one of the hardest things I've ever done. I was three when he and my mom bought that house, and he lived there ever since.

I will miss him greatly.
