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.
