Time to Say Good-bye

December 4, 2009 | Family

Sometimes it’s hard for a professional writer to find the right works. Today is that time for me.

Studs’ 89 year old dad peacefully passed away this past Monday. A devout Catholic, Dave was a man filled with love and humor which he needed while he and his lovely wife Ruth raised their nine children. He loved to sing and for 25 years belonged to a barbershop quartet and chorus, The Singing Men of Note, where he sang lead and bass.

Even though today we must say good-bye, Dave and the kindness he showered on me the few years I knew him has effected my life for the better. His generosity and patience are traits I aspire to.

I’ll miss you, young Dave. May you rest well.

    My condolences to Studs and his family. It always seems too short when your parent dies. Memories give them immortality.
