A Brief Personal Note

In some ways this blog is a public forum for the discussion of issues that affect us all, and in some ways it is a vehicle for personal expression, and in that light let me mention this. Last week my father was moved to hospice care and I went out to Phoenix to see him one last time. As it turned out, my sister and I were at his bedside when he passed away quietly Thursday night. It was the end of a good life, an inspiring life, and we will miss him.

Jim I am so sorry.

It is so hard to lose a parent regardless of how long their life is I think ....

I lost my dad a little over 15 years ago to cancer, 2 months after my son was born. He was only 69.

Our thoughts and prayers are with you at this difficult time.

Jim, I am sorry to read of the loss of your father. I lost my mother in July 2008 and it was not easy. My father is in his late 80's. The one thing we don't lose are the cherished memories and may you find comfort in them.
