Never rains but it pours

Update: Will be offline the next few days due to the funeral. Many thanks for your expressions of sympathy. Jonah had a good suggestion: that maybe I could tell some Old Paco stories later on. I'll certainly try to do that.

My father, Old Paco, died peacefully in his sleep last night. He was a couple of months shy of his 90th birthday. He came in with Calvin Coolidge and he went out with Donald Trump. What a vast era of radical changes in this country is held between those two presidential bookends. God rest the soul of this lawman, entrepreneur, and beloved father.

I lost my father last year, my prayers and deepest condolences, Paco. You expect it, you think you can cope, but it's still a massive blow, and the hole never goes away.

God bless, MarkL of Canberra

In 90 years, I bet Old Paco had a whole lot of wonderful stories to tell.

Sorry for the belated response. Our deepest condolences to all. We are truly saddened. At times like this, I am reminded of a sentence from a John Denver song that says, "Tho The singer is silent,there still is the truth of the song".
