Beautiful song. Must be so hard for him to continue on without her. :(

I only met him once, but my dedication to him goes beyond the Swamp...It comes from with in, and begs me to speak for him...My only wish is that I can do justice to him.
another one of Ray's favorites...

Donna..Their oldest said..." I think the greatest gift of our lives is what is left behind after we pass---our children,grandchildren,relitives, friends and all the people who we met at one time or another...Mom...Not a day goes by for me that I don't meet someone or see someone or hear something that reminds me of you

Donna..The oldest of 9 children...Not only did Ray work outside the home ( but he was busy ) in the home :wink: ...all praise goes to Bev on this one...No " noogies " for you young man. :mrgreen:

I can not imagine in todays world, of having 9 children :shock: ...I would have been in heaven...Just to try to reach that mark :mrgreen:

Beautiful, heartfelt words Big Papa. Thank you so much. I will make sure Dad sees this thread.
Yes--he is still with us. He is very frail. We've had 3 ER visits in the past 2 months. The last one was Monday night. He was admitted to the hospital with dehydration--and very weak. When it was time for discharge, he was not allowed to go home and live alone. He was pretty devastated. His options were to a nursing home, 24/7 home health coming in or to live with someone. Barb has been offering for a long time to take him in - and he finally agreed. If he gets healthy enough to live at home again, we will make it work. It's only been a few days, so we are all adjusting. I updated a few Monkeys with FB message this afternoon and thought of all of you. it's been a long time since I've been on here. I was just heading to bed and figured I'd take a quick lurk-LOL. So glad I did--except you made me cry! But, your words have reminded me of so many happy memories. Sweet dreams to all you wonderful Monkeys--you are family.

Thank you so much for giving us news about your dad. Yes, he is cherished here a lot. I hope he can adjust to his new circumstances ( how wonderful of Barb to take care of him ) and that he will still find some joy in small things. I will send positive thoughts to all of you.
