Unexpected things happen everyday and there is just no preparing for it.
In loving memory of my dad, John-1937-2011, who unexpectedly but peacefully passed away during his afternoon nap.
He was one of the most selfless, kind, giving and loving people I knew. He loved people, was very social and he loved animals too.
So many memories. Breakfast was his favorite meal and the waitresses at the coffee shop loved him. I remember as a kid going to breakfast with him and the employees would say "Hi John!" then he would go help himself to coffee. I remember when he worked graveyard hours and in the morning when we'd wake up for school there would be cat food in the garage for the stray cats( my mom never did dig that scene.) Our love of animals came from our dad. I remember one time he ran into a fast food restaurant and bought a meal for a homeless man, I'm sure there were many more he did the same for. There have been people my mom never knew about just calling or showing up at the house with stories about how kind my dad was and how much they enoyed the many conversations and/or visits my dad had with them. After all of these years my mom is just finding out how truly wonderful and caring my dad really was.
There are so many more memories I have, just to much to share.
I will miss him always.
