A Toast

This past Saturday my 84-year-old stepdad Don, passed away after a lengthy battle with heart disease. I'm not sure if stepdad is really appropriate since he & my mom married when I was 36, but so what. (My real dad had passed away when I was 30 at the ripe old age of 56.)

 

Don was an ex-marine, surgeon, avid fisherman, bird hunter and shotgunner. Most important, he was a devoted and loving husband to my mom for 23 years and the only grandfather my 2 boys ever knew. He was also a good friend to me.

 

I'm traveling to St. Louis today for the visitation and funeral is tomorrow so will be off the wire for a several days.

 

In the meantime drinks are on me. Please raise a glass and a tip o' the hat to a fine Irish gentleman.

Dad is a title that is EARNED, not given.

Sounds like he EARNED it, to me.

RIP, Sir.

Absolutely correct Lumpy.

 

I could care less about my sperm donor, I love my "Dad" that sacrificed and raised me as his own.

 

Prayers up for Slim and Don.
