QUOTE (Bulldog_916 @ Apr 24 2009, 08:39 PM) You guys are all awesome, thank you so much. We're having the memorial celebration on May 16th. I wish I could smoke a bowl in his honor right now, I've been down with a cold for about a week now so I'm keeping away till I'm 100%. My family is coping well, we're all keeping a bit of a sense of humor and perspective on the whole thing. My dad (his son) is doing better now that there isnt any uncertainty about the whole thing and that pain is no longer an issue. There's a kind of relief in his passing, it sounds weird I know but that's just the feeling. I'm just kind of saddened that he had just finished closing his store to retire to a life of travel and relaxation and this has to happen. It's really unfortunate. But he had a great run. Once again, thank you all, your words mean so much to me. Cheers! looking from a religious or spiritual standpoint. he is retiring to a life of peace and relaxation now. more than he would ever find here. glad you're making it, bro.
