Kathleen, Kelly and David, I was so saddened to learn of your father’s passing. We became friends at the bus stop, commuting back and forth together on the bus. We were bus buddies. I got the window seat so I could take a nap and he had the aisle so he could read the paper. I knew he’d never let me sleep through our stop. I am sorry we lost touch after I was laid off. I thought of him often and was so excited when he was able to retire and focus more on his golf game! I know that was a passion of his. I admired the way he was able to “shut off” work the moment he walked out that door, so he did not miss a second of enjoying life. He was always positive and joyful. We had a lot of laughs together. I will miss his infectious smile. Deepest sympathies to you all. Cheers to the Big Man!
