Hi guys,

You guys are the best. Thanks to my mush friend, Jerry, for the post. He and I laugh a lot. Alot a lot. I wish you guys could meet him. He is the best.

My dad was 98 years. He was a hard working, no nonsense guy. He had seven kids and a wife to provide for. He became an expert in carbide cutting tools and precision measuring instruments during WW II while helping to make aircraft engines for GE and started his own business when I was still kicking the cradle. He and my mom (97 with late stage alzheimers) taught us morality, discipline, respect, how to work hard, sacrifice, courage, and modesty. They also pushed us to get educated.

My dad had a manhattan with dinner every night. Other than that he never, gambled, drank, did drugs, or cheated on my mom. The guy was always working. Except for when he stopped to go to Red Sox games or scream at the TV when the Saturday Evening fights were on or when Jimmy Brown toted the rock for the Browns. Ted Williams was his favorite baseball player and Jimmy Brown was his favorite football player. When his business was going good he had season's tickets to the Red Sox. He used to take my brother and I to Fenway at night. We'd get a bag of peanuts from a guy who had a pushcart outside the park. Same guy every time. Me, my brother, and my father would share that bag of peanuts, cracking the shells with our teeth and discarding them on the ground under our sears. We were in baseball heaven. Walking up that ramp to the huge light stanchions splashing light that made the grass greener than anything I had ever seen, was a breathtaking experience etched in my mind forever. The left field wall. The Green Monster, was so big and intimidating that we would go to sleep dreaming of being big and strong enough to one day be able to hit a baseball that would clear it. Thanks dad for those vivid memories.

I could go on and on but there's a little slice of me and my dad.

He went to "eternal rest" as Marty put it, peacefully, dying simply from conjestive heart failure brought on by old age. THey medicated him for the past several days. He felt no pain. I'm sure God saved a special seat for him next to Ruth, Mantle, Piersall, DiMaggio, Yogi, Yaztremski and Williams. They're in the sky boxes trading stories and waiting for spring training to begin.

Hope that's not too much information.

Thanks to my Talksport brothers for the kind words, thoughts, prayers, and beads of wisdom. You guys are the bestest.

Sorry to hear this Mickeyt

I went through this a few months ago. It fucking sucks. You think you are prepared but your not.
Your dad and mine grew up in a time that none of us can relate to. The Great Depression and World War.
Our kids and grandkids will never understand what that generation went through. My prayers are with you and your family.

Dang Jim, so sorry to see this. Both of my parents are still around (Dad is 85 Mom 78) so I can't say I know what you are going through. Can't imagine the pain brother. Just know that you and your family are in my prayers.
