As many of you know, my dad passed away three days after Christmas. Fortunately we were up in New York for my niece’s wedding and I was able to be with him during his last moments. It really is a relief to know that he has shed his heavy, cumbersome, earthly body and his soul is now free to roam the heavens and watch over us all. Many of you had an opportunity to dance with him while he was staying with me last summer for about five weeks and I thank you all for making his stay here fun. He did win a jitterbug contest when he was in his early 20’s and he was singing and trying to dance right up to the end.
