 Lost my best teacher today.

My Father was called back to his maker today, Dad was 95 living all but the last few months with robust health. He probably saw more change in his lifetime than any generation before him. He and his eleven brothers and sisters lived thru the great depression, dust bowl,watched their widdowed mother lose the farm in the deperssion. He taught me the value of honesty, hard work, frugality, and the ability to make something usefull out of almost nothing. I and my family will miss him of course, but God put him on this earth to do a job, he did it well and now has gone home to rest, we'll carry his values on from here. Only thing I never understood about Dad is how a man so conservative could bave been such a staunch Democrat. Frank.

That is so hard. Every time I hear of someone losing their father it brings back memories of when I lost mine. You were obviously blessed to have a father who was a role model and that must be a comfort.

I'm sorry to hear of your loss Frank. Your description of him as your teacher is telling. How better to be remembered but as someone who lived his life passing his knowledge to his children.
Dave

Thanks to all for your words of kindness. Good friends and family are much more valuable than any material thing we have. Your kindness will not be forgotten. Frank, Lucile and Family.

God bless, Frank, you are in my thoughts and prayers.

It's tough, but we all seem to make it somehow, and as you say, friends and family helps.

The best tribute you could have given was turning out the way you did.

Be thankfull you had such a great teacher, as I 'm sure he was for having such a great student.

Ted.
