I received some unfortunate news last week; my sister in law Sherry's father had died. I always quite liked Sam as he always made feel extremely welcome in their home. With the opportunity to pay respects and visit with the family I took off immediately from work Thursday night.
Mom was home the first night and most of the next day - I picked Richard up after the funeral and Mom went through some of her pictures of her many travels with him.
Later that night Richard and I joined Lawrence and Nikki down by the Bessborough in the Jazz Festival beer gardens.
