2015 can go away now....  
As some of you were aware, my father had been nearly an invalid for several years, our lives revolving around him not being able to be left alone, planning vacations in shifts, not even all of us able to go out to dinner together, etc.. About six weeks ago, he ended up in hospital, from there to a rehab facility, and then 4 short days under hospice care. He died on Sunday.

I'm taking the next two days as bereavement leave from work, and as chance would have it, my vacation was already scheduled to start Monday. Good chance, I think having a week to spend with friends is probably exactly the best thing.

73 es 88 de K7LAV SK
{{{{Hugs}}}} Maybe now he can spend some time with my old friend Bill Carrington, W8YCI.

You have been in our thoughts and prayers, but we were not expecting this even if he was in his mid-80s.

It is hard to measure how fortunate I am that my parents are in such fine health, coming up on 88 and 87 this year, but then they have another great-grandchild to anticipate.

We are told that the next will be a girl to go with my daughter and SIL's two year old (see inserted picture).
