I wrote a long post a couple of weeks ago about my stepfather being sick. Well I lost him a week ago. Thank you guys for the well wishes and prayers.

At the risk of compromising my anonymity here was a quick blurb about it in the News and Observer.

Remember the good times.  Take solace in the time you two had together! 

 

That's why there are Wakes.  So family and Friends can come together and rejoice a loved ones life.

 

There's and old Native American saying.  "A person is not judged by how long he has live.  But how many people were glad he did."
