My father-in-law

Dear friends,

I just wanted to tell you all that my dear and wonderful father-in-law passed away comfortably last night, two months short of his 94th birthday. I knew him for 35 years. My children, including my son who is studying in Montreal, were there to see him only a few hours before he left us and it was a magnificent sight to watch grown adults (my youngest is 24) caressing and giving him a last kiss. Following the tenets of Jewish law, he will be interred today.

I appreciate the support that this awesome and caring group has given me and my family during this difficult time. I think that we should all appreciate life just a bit more, and hold our loved ones just a bit more tightly. Life is a present. Let's not squander a single moment.

We are all survivors. We must be. We will be.

Breathe in your family's love. It is an elixir that is simply indescribable.

" Eddie,

I will have to live even longer so that I can celebrate yours! I hope you are doing well. When I see your name pop up on the site, my sympathetic nervous system gets a respite. You are now on the road to age 94 again, and I am very happy for that.

Cliff "

" I was looking for Cliff and there was Ed. GREAT TO SEE YOU BACK -- we were worried about you. I expect you have told your story on one of the other threads -- I am going to go look for it now.
