I feel as though my father has passed away - again...
Holly and Tracy - my family didn't know you well, but the "boys" will remember us (fondly, I hope.)
"Uncle" John (as he'll ALWAYS be to me) lived a good, long life. I will never forget being at my father's funeral in West Virginia, when who should walk in but your father. I understand he couldn't stand to go with us to the cemetary and left immediately after the service, but he was THERE for us!
He was the "Barney Rubble" to my father's "Fred Flintstone." We had ALL the holidays together, as our families all lived out of state.
Please know how much I loved him! My condolences to all of the family.
