News of your father & his final wishes has reached at least as far as Columbus (OH). When I read the story I was saddened by the loss of what had to be a very unique & interesting man. What a life he had! And then to know that, as his family, you ensured that his final wishes were carried out – he (& your mother) raised such a caring & loving family. Your efforts are a true testament to the memory of both your parents. I’ll keep you all in my prayers. God bless!
