    Jim,
    Sorry about your family's loss. It sounds like your dad led a full and robust life. Whenever a loved one passes, we tend to think of things that could have been different, but it sounds as if you have a lot of wonderful memories of your dad and through those memories you treasure and those you pass to your children, family and or friends, your dad will live on.

    Wow! 101 is amazing and oh how you can celebrate knowing that he was blessed with so many years on this world. Jim I am sorry that you have lost the physical connection with your father. However; he is always with you and in the memories and hearts of others!

    Blessings,
    SM

    Jim,
    I'm so sorry that I was right across the isle from you this weekend and didn't have any idea. While I would certainly morn the loss of him, the life that your father lived is to be envied and celebrated. Prayers go out to you and your family for your loss.

    sorry to hear of your loss Jim. You have been blessed with a great father, and the memorial you described sounds like a very fitting tribute to him.

    Default My sincerest condolences

    My thoughts and prayers for the Lord's comfort for you and the family. Your Dad sounds like a fine man from what you have shared and i am sure he will be missed. My prayer is that the good memories of your past with him and the future hope of the eternal and heavenly reunion with those that have preceded us who know Jesus, will outshine and eclipse the present grief of your Dad's having passed!

    God Bless,
    Mike
