My Dad, R.I.P.

My Dad died a few weeks ago. That's why I haven't been around here a lot lately. It's a major development, certainly, but it wasn't something that I really felt like blogging about. Not until now, anyway.
We had a memorial service for him in the reception room of a public golf course in Kansas, not far from where he lived and raised his family from the late 1960s to the early 1990s. He would have like it - my dad was an avid golfer. Actually, I ued to caddy for him on various courses around the Kansas City area. Although in the 1980s he did join a modest private golf club, for the most part he was a dedicated public course player. It was nice to look out over the 1st and 18th holes as my family and I shared stories about him with friends, neighbors and co-workers from the long flow of years.
