My dad died over the weekend. He gave me many things in life, but I remember him most for his constant, enveloping and unqualified love. He was a giant to me and I miss him terribly. Goodbye, Dad – I love you.
Update: here are links to his obituaries in various papers / news outlets
P.S. – Yes, he did cast his absentee ballot before he died. And as anyone who heard him cracking wise at a friend’s memorial service a few weeks previous (“you Obama supporters can have these nice seats here, anyone voting for McCain can just watch it on video in the lobbby…”), it’s a safe bet he voted for the good guys.
