Sorry to hear about your loss. I am at a loss for words thinking I am a cancer survivor and my parents are older and this day will come too.

Again, sorry for your loss.

Thank you guys

For anybody interested in attending...

My dads Memorial Service will be held on May 6th at the Evergreen Fair grounds in Monroe in one of the 4H buildings at 2pm.

This will open to anybody who wish's to attend.

I had been contacted by a local mustang club my father had joined "Emerald City Mustangs" and want to do a tribute the same day. Since I will be driving my mom in his car to the memorial I am hoping to have a large following of cars to it but I have to work on the specifics still.

But its open to anybody.

I am a little too far to pay my respects in person, but I want to pay them now. I wish your dad would have had more time to enjoy his car and his wonderful family.

Hopes and prayers that all of you come out of this as ok as possible. I offer you (and you family) my best wishes, and deepest condolence.

I lost my father just weeks after we started rebuilding the family mustang. I finished the car on my own after about 2 years. Very often I sit in the garage and put some of his Led Zepplin in the cd player. I feel like he is in the passenger seat right next to me. Your father left a part of him there with you in that car. its priceless to kinda have a way to still hang out with him.

So its been a busy couple weeks meeting with folks and all of us family. I miss my father very much but I am glad we as a family have pulled together to help each other.

All of us kids met with the Pastor and spent probably a good hour going over my dads life which helped my mom in many ways. With that discussion we were able to get his Obituary done.

For anybody interested here it is.

What an emotional day but it was a good day it was today.

Saturday we got the memorial setup and I spent the night at my moms which ended up being a nice relaxing night and we talked till pretty late.

I got up early today and got my dads car cleaned and washed up and we headed out where a local Mustang club was meeting and waiting for us in the town of Maryville (about 30 miles from the memorial location)

From there we caravaned with 10 mustangs behind us and what a cool sight it was heading down the highway.

I have never seen a flag ceremony before but they went thru the process and gave my mom a flag for my dads service in the military.

Got to see lots of folks with some I had not seen in 20 years.

For those interested here is my dads last request full filled. It was a hard thing to do but I am glad I did it and was enjoyable to watch at the service.

I'd also like to thank everyone for condolences on my Moms passing. She went peacefully in her sleep, at home in her own bed, at the age of 87. Can't ask for much more than that.
