Sorry Rod.

That is a day I dread. My Dad and I are really close and I can't imagine what life will be like without him around :zen:

90 ... wow what he must've witnessed in his lifetime. I love talking to well travelled folks like him. The yarns they can spin.

Rod, my condolences to you and family and I have so much respect for how you cared for your dad. He needed it and know that he appreciated it.

I lost my dad in 2000 to cancer. There is still a void there, but I take solace in that the time we spent together was quality time.

God speed, sir.

Its funny how some of those "dad" stories come out later in life.... I dont remember him telling us kids some things earlier in life.
Like how he was out vistin with the farmers (sales call) one day over around Marquez ... some dude in a Chevy PU pulled along side gassin it
Dad said he jus mashed the gas on that International PU (392ci I think) & watched the rearview mirror as that ol Chevy kinda faded away in the distance.........

We had a nice visitation for dad yesterday eve.... many folks n family came by. Hopefully ....the heat will stay at bay today for the 6pm graveside service at Blue Ridge. At least the large oak trees will provide some welcome shade....& if theres a breeze..... the chimes we've got hung in the trees will be tinklin a tune..... sorta

Sat nite update:
We had a wonderful service in Waco... & at Blue Ridge....
The clouds kept the heat down....
There was a bit of a breeze & plenty of shade.....

Also..... Thank you so very much Mark (gravelguy) for dropping by for the graveside service. It let my family kno that our motorcycle community is a caring group.....

Thank you all
Rod
