Subject: RE: Obit: alison's dad
All of my love and sympathy to you and the rest of your family, Alison. I'll never forget, one of our first times in HearMe, I think it was, when I found out we had had an Irish gal in Australia who'd grown up with her dad singing Marty Robbins! (Small world, after all!)
I am really glad, for all your sakes, that you were able to be there with him and Rosemary. I lost my dad seven years ago this month. I still miss him and wish he were here, but it doesn't hurt as much nor as constantly as it did the first couple of years. The memories and gifts our parents give us can be of great comfort. Seems this past year has put too much on your plate, though. May the coming year bring your fairer skies and as Jerry Rasmussen's song, "Handful of Songs" says, "there's joy in remembering..."
