Stepfather

My stepfather is dying so I probably won't be posting for a few days. He's 102 and so he's certainly had a good run but seeing him this afternoon only reminded me of his many good years as my mom's husband. He was just about perfect as a mate and all of us loved him a great deal. I'm aware I'm using the past tense but I doubt he'll live through the night. A very decent, bright, friendly guy and a very active one late into his nineties. He was a true friend and I'll sure miss him.

Very sorry to hear it, Ed. Age doesn't matter in these things. It's hard to say good-bye, no matter what. Best to you and Carol.
