OldWillz died today of cancer. Pain free at last.

 

I've been running about for months sorting stuff out while he was in the hospital, now he's gone. Kept it quiet because it's been cool to have something else to occupy me.

 

Orphan now.

Sorry to hear the news.

Last night my Dad died. He had been poorly for a few weeks. He was 90 but despite being blind for the last five years he was not unhealthy. We celebrated his 90th birthday back in February and then he was still able to participate. Things had not been easy for him considering he was a widower aged 50 with four children aged 19 to 9. He eventually started another relationship but she succumbed to Alzheimer's about 5 years ago.

Sorry to hear about that Biblio. At least he lived a good long life by the sounds of it though.

So sorry for your loss. Someday in the future you will be somewhere or be doing something and think: my dad would have liked this or he would have liked to be here. At those times you will know he was with you in spirit. It is quite comforting when that happens. R.I. P.

Fortunately for me my Dad planned most of his funeral many years ago and my eldest sister is an arch organiser so I am not having to deal with admin issues.

 

Thanks to everyone for all your kind words and thoughts.

drol, my thoughts are with you and yours at this time. Sincerest condolences.

 

Maybe somewhere, somehow, your dad, Biblio's dad and my dad are looking down on us, sayng "So that's why they were on their computer!" Quite the time for the three of us.
