Thinking about you a lot lately. I miss you Dad. I wish you were here to see your grandchildren's lives unfold, they miss you also.

Love you Dad. Wish you were here.

Hey Day,

Yesterday tradition was upheld at your place of rest. Who thought both your grandchildren would follow in your daughters footsteps.

We visited your grave and cleaned it up. I don't go often, because you are not buried in the plot you had purchased. So seeing you grave stone not only in the wrong place, but without your requested inscription. I fought my hardest to honor your last wishes. I miss you less often then before. I am getting used to you not being here and the thought of this sickening, because you should be....

Love you,
Joan

Today I had been reminiscing about some of my professors at the U of I School of Music back in the early '70s and decided to do a search for my favorite piano instructor, Guy Wuellner. Imagine my shock to come across his obituary.

During the time that I studied with him, Guy had just received his doctorate; and so the first time I'd seen him after he'd received his DMA, I referred to him as Dr. Wuellner.

"Oh no, no, no!!" he shot back with a twinkle in his eye, The title 'doctor' is reserved only for REAL doctors!! And we both chuckled.

Even though the exchange was in a jocular vein, his humility made a lasting impression as I'll always remember his self-effacing retort.

Although I only studied with him for a year, I must say I learned a lot from him. I still remember several, hilarious quips he'd use as teaching tools in describing how to best execute specific passages from Beethoven sonatas.

And I can still feel how the piano would rumble and his red hair would fly as he demonstrated those proper techniques!

Today is January 11, 2019; so Guy has been gone for some seven years. My heart breaks as I've read the many poignant entries his loving daughter, Joan, has written (and continues to write) on this site.

Even though I never knew Guy's family and my contact with him was limited to a single year back in the early '70s, I still feel saddened to read of his untimely passing and would like to extend my condolences to Joan and her family.

Joan, I'm sure your daddy is smiling down from above - so very proud of you!

Hi Dad, I still miss you, I will never lose that feeling. But my life is as back to normal or as close to it since 2009; when I started to take care of you and Elise. I feel powerless how the end of your life was, it should not have ended so soon. I wish everything you requested could have been fulfilled, but my attorneys were not as good at the game. I don't go to your grave often because I know this is not where you wanted your remains, but I know your spirit is where it should be. (sorry prepositional phrase) Love you Dad. You are missed and your influence that should have happened will never come to fruition. For that, I don't know if I will ever be able to forgive.
