I just passed your parent's house last week and waved at your father outside racking leaves in his yard. I remember thinking how well he was doing at his age.
My condolences to your mother and family. I am so sorry to hear of your father's passing.

My dad was a very gentle and and loving man that I will miss greatly. Growing up I always loved the way way he smelled of sawdust, wood stain and shellac. Those are three things that always have and always will remind me of him.
