My Dad passed away @ 9:30 last night at a hospital in West Palm FL @ age 88 Although this posting will more than likely enlist sympathy from my friends in the Pregame community, my intention is to embark on a series of tributes that I plan on posting at various web sites I frequent. Some of my Father's work accomplishments are worth noting and affected almost this entire country.After completion, I plan on a future elaboration in this thread. Bottom line, this was not "out of the blue" and I was prepared for the end of this long time battle against his diseases for some time. I'm fine and he is no longer suffering from a lower quality of life. He was a WWll veteran and asked to be laid to rest in a military cemetery near his home. Peace!
