the aforementioned Bon Vivant



Word came this morning that my Dad died at home after a short illness and a long wonderful life. Bless my brother and sisters and all the friends who have been there to help him.

(Like many young men of his time, Poppy fudged his age by a few years to be eligible to join the navy in WWII.
 He never would never divulge his real dob. Rest in peace Old fox.)

Thinking of you Deb. Sending love and hugs.
My dad did the same 'fudging'...and told the Navy he could swim!
May you hold your dad's love and stories close for a long long time.

A new time now in your life. My sincere sympathy for the loss. These changes in our relational constants, I know, are deeply personal shifts. May you have many comforts and many true friends for this one.
