Sorry to hear that, Trinity man. What a blessing and privilege was yours to have had parents married for 63 years. Our thoughts and prayers go out for you and your family.

Thanks for all the kind words. We will be gone all day tomorrow for the viewing. Thanks Jiggs for the comment on the houston Chronicle. Tonight my mother went to the bed room to check on him like she has for the past few weeks. Thats when it hit her that he is gone. I keep telling her that he's in a better place working on getting thier next ranch start in heaven. She smiles and saids I hope its rainning there. Even with her Alheizmer's she still know whats going on.

I'm sorry to hear you lost your Dad. Thank God for the good long run he and your Mother had together and the time you had with him. It never seems long enough, though. By the time I hit 30, 23 years ago, I realized that 10 or 20 years is nothing. When we're kids we always hear the old folks say that life goes by so fast. When your're 11 or 12 years old and you hear an 80 year old saying so, you just can't wrap your little mind around it. God bless you and your family.
