It's a long and busy page, but everything on it is worthwhile, I promise. Forgive my sloppy cropping and hit or miss editing.
It is such a pity that we do events like funerals only after the person whom we celebrate is gone.
Dad would have loved his funeral, inspite of the fact he'd grumble we were making too much fuss.
He would have loved to be there, and loved to have seen each and every person that came.
My Remarkable Dad

People wondered why we had a print of a liquor store on display at the funeral.
Dad's office was second floor, third on the left.
My brother and I each have a copy of this great print.
John's copy hung where Dad could see it evey day.
Thanks to Robyn Bryant for her words of wisdom on making the movie.

I was waiting to be struck by lightining in the church for videoing the eulogy,
When I realized I wasn't going to be struck at all, I turned on the camera on at the cemetery, but I missed the first 7 of the 21 guns.
I did the best could, and Mom is happy with the video. What more could I ask?
Holy cow. I can't get anyone to admit taking the above picture, they all swear it was my dad. Thanks to Jim Crowley for this one!
