Sorry for the absence

Hi everybody. I am so sorry that I haven't posted in so long, but life just got in the way. This is a photo of my father-in-law with my husband and his daughter (my sister in law) taken at on Christmas eve. He passed away the day before Easter. He was a very special man and will be missed greatly. So, DH and I had a sad 1000 mile trip to make to go to the viewing and funeral. We are so grateful to all the folks who came out to pay their last respects to this great 91 year old man who touched so many lives. It was amazing to hear the stories that people told us as they came through the line. He was part of the lives of young folks and old folks. He was a farmer and in the last years had run a small vegetable stand in front of his house and sold the best vegetables that he raised. I have not had sweet corn as sweet and yummy since he quit raising it and we moved away. Anyhow, we will miss him and his sense of humor and love of family. One can't be too sad tho because he had a very full 91 years.
Thanks for checking in.
