Rest in Peace

Shep Yelman, 1913 - 2010

Precious rascal. We are going to miss you.

Yesterday was tough but today all I can think of are the funny stories. Just missed his 97 birthday. The last time we talked I'd been laying plans to bring the party to him. Yesterday he mumbled, "we haven't had the party yet..."

My heart is full of gratitude to the staff at Horizon Bay Assisted Living who tended to this gentleman with kindness when he needed it most. He hated being there with his whole independent heart but they were as gentle and caring as this feisty WWII veteran deserved.

Blogging and crying. Sheesh.
