Thanks for the kind words. Dad made a graceful exit late yesterday afternoon. He had been in the hospital for a week, low on strength with a high temperature. The past two days he slept most of the time, but regained consciousness often enough to get hugs from the ladies and handshakes from Will, Brock, and me. Dad's grip was still very strong. We were all able to express our love, thanks, and good-byes to him, but were unable to hear his very weak response. He was a born-again Christian, and is now in a much better place. We will miss him, but celebrate the 91 and a half years of his long productive life. He had a very positive influence on many friends and neighbors. Thank you, everyone.
