Myra, you know how much I absolutely love this. Number one that you documented it. But the fact that you pressed the point to speak to this man that was very dear to you in his dying days. You would have had him basking in the warm glow of your love as you recounted the stories to him and made his passing so much easier. You are a true angel. X
I have so much respect for your reaction to the news from your father. So many people would have just remembered and let it go - it is so special and wonderful that you persisted in getting to tell him what he meant to you.
