Mel’s dad. An outdoorsman, he liked to fish, hunt and garden. Vast knowledge of nature, passed on his love and wonder for nature to Mel. Loved kids and animals. Had a great sense of humor. (Once told a great-grandson “A booger got it” when asked why part of his finger was missing.) He collected old glass bottles, filling his garage. A kind, loving guy. I’ll miss him, too.
Mel went home to care for her dad this week, just like she does for many other people where she works. She’s grateful she was able to be there with him. So am I.
As I explained in my last post, I hope I see him again someday.
I’m sorry for yours and Mel’s loss. I am going to see my dad for the weekend and I will give him extra hugs.
I’m sorry for your lost. He sounded like a wonderful man.
I hope you find joy in your memories of him. My sympathies to you and your family.
My sympathies, Bird. He looks like he was a nice old guy.
So sorry to hear that. Best wishes to you and Mel and your family.
Hey – sorry I’m late. Send Mel our love and sympathies. We’re sending you some as well, Bird. I’m glad you’re both there for each other.
sorry for your loss. my sympathy to you and Mel.
Oh, I’m so sorry. Like you, I’m glad that she was able to be with him in those last days, but I know the loss must be deeply painful for you both (each in your own way). My sympathies to you, to Mel, and to her entire family.
