Wow, I can't imagine what you are going through this Christmas. Prayers for you and your family.
I remember my grandfather passing at about the same age. He too was the best daddy I could have had. We still go mullet fishing together to this day.
__________________ Washington is playing their ignorant and ill-informed constituency like an organ grinder plays his monkey. The monkey shuts up and does what he's told, as long as he gets his banana. There is no difference in Washington. They squander the blood sweat and tears of the hard working, tax paying Americans and lie to them when they're caught. Needing their ever-increasing supply of bananas, the trained monkeys will continue to dance for their bananas.
