A sad week

It has been a sad week here at Knatolee's World. My father-in-law passed away early Friday, and we are dealing with the aftermath of that. Dad died of a heart aneurysm, and fortunately my mother-in-law, husband and I were able to be with him when he passed. If you could think good thoughts for Mom and my hubby over the next few days, I know they could do with some comforting energy. Gordon is an only child, and I know how hard it is to lose a parent. Dad had a good life and he will be missed.

Among his many positive traits, George was a good father-in-law and a good Scotsman,  and I raise a virtual Drambuie in his memory. He had a full life, but it's never long enough.
