Change? Upheaval? Transition?
Rusty's dad passed away peacefully on Friday while awaiting heart surgery that was scheduled for Monday.
Though they were never close, there was an accord which developed over the past several years. I only met him twice, myself; once when Kate was an infant and he visited us in Oregon, and when he and his wife made a trip to Wisconsin in the '90s.
Rest in peace Smokey.
