Dad: October 7 1943-January 17 2005


Full fathom five thy father lies;
Of his bones are coral made;
Those are pearls that were his eyes,  
Nothing of him that doth fade
But doth suffer a sea change
Into something rich and strange.
Sea nymphs hourly ring his knell:
Hark! I hear them--ding-dong bell.

{{hugs}} to you! My own Papa has been gone 6 years and I can still his beloved voice in my mind. Take care!

My dad has been gone nearly 6 years too (first week in February). It is so important to mark these anniversaries.
