Jim,

I am sorry to hear of your recent loss. The universe is always a bit more hollow - for a time - after someone we love and respect is no longer present in the same way.

I sincerely hope that he carried some of the wonderful tribute you wrote to him for Father's Day.

If I had known him, and had the opportunity to read your letter to him, I would have then said, as they say, man to man: "That's a good days work, Claude.

I read here regularly, Jim, but have never commented. I wanted to now though, to give you my condolences. I read your beautiful post about your father on Father's Day. He sounds like a wonderful man, as do you. My thoughts are with you.

that was a very moving letter to your dad. it reminded me of my devotion to hot rod magazine in my early days. i'm sure i saw pictures of that car. your father raised a good son. quite an accomplishment on its own.

Jim - I have not read in a few days because I have been busy with work, and I was shocked and very saddened to read of your dad's passing, after having so recently "met" him through your tribute post. I am very sad for you and Peggy and my heart goes out to you.
:(
I wish for you and your family the blessings of peace during this sad time. Hugs all around.

Thanks for your thoughtfulness everyone.

Everything is OK here, my stepdad's passing was actually a very good thing.

Alzheimer's had taken him from us many years ago and he was really just living in an empty shell.

For the past several months he was vocalizing loudly (sort of a wordless off-key humming/chanting) from the morning 'til night making it very difficult for the folks at the care facility to be around him.

Then, a couple of weeks ago he fell, severely fracturing his hip, and when he was admitted to the hospital his temperature was pretty high and his blood pressure dropped.

At that point surgery was out of the question, and, after consulting with the doctor, my mom decided it was time to let him slip away, so they kept him comfortably doped up, and he passed on peacefully a few days later.

Dad would have been 85 this December.

Peace and Love to you all...

Sorry to hear that. Even if someone is just "there"... its still sad. I've read your blog often but have never commented.

May the Mysterious Creator and Nurturer of this Universe give you peace.
