Well Dan, you made it to 90 years old as you predicted when that loving, happy, friendly canine Buddy arrived in your life ten years ago. I remember that you said it to me in a grumpy way! He sure did perk you up Dan and we loved him for it! I remember Buddy and Blue, my cat as babies wrestling like puppies until the day Blue got too big for Buddy and fur flew! But they continued to be friends and would greet each other with a kiss on the nose. Those extra ten years were a blessing to all of us!

I have missed our countless fascinating conversations. Oh, the last few years of your illness I missed your wonderful, quirky paintings! World Class Art that spoke to human nature… it was so great!
