    BugDude FIL passed today

    My father-in-law passed at 11:05 this morning. My wife called me early this morning and told me I should come on up, but I didn't make it before he passed. She said he went peacefully at home surrounded by his daughters. He was a good man, Vietnam Veteran, 2A supporter, golf buddy, shooting buddy, fishing buddy, and devoted father and grandfather. I miss him already. He was a very active part of our lives. I wish my 3 year old son could have gotten to know him as he grew up...I'll have to be sure to tell him about him often.

    At least he isn't suffering and agonizing anymore. He died less than six weeks from his diagnosis, and up to that point had been going and doing everything he wanted to do. At least he didn't suffer for years.

    I'm sorry to hear that, but I'm glad he's no longer in any pain.

    You and yours are in my thoughts.

    Now in the care of the Eternal Rangemaster/Greenskeeper.

    Rest easy, brother. His trials are over, now passed on to the survivors - you, Mrs. BD, and her sisters. Celebrate the great relationship you had with him, and definitely let your next generation know all about him - possibly the best tribute you can pay him.

    Taps for a fallen veteran.

    BD, I am so sorry. May God grant you and your bride great comfort.
    What a joy to have had such a wonderful father and FIL.
    Not many ever have that blessing.
