"Christmas 2013" The passing of my step-father


David Letterman - Darlene Love "Christmas (Baby Please Come Home)"
Never heard of this Darlene Love before, but she's got this number down! Here's wishing all of you a very Merry Christmas and a wonderful New Year. I will be traveling back to Wisconsin for my step-father's funeral this week. He's a special man, World War II decorated fighter pilot, life-long teacher and high school principal. He met and married the love of his life and for most of their lives, they were together. After illness took her life, Vic spent quite a few years alone, eventually meeting my mom in 2002. And they have been married for 10 years. My mom lost my father in 1999. Vic and mom have loved and taken care of each other while each professing their love for their former spouses. After all, they spent the majority of their lives with their previous mates raising their own children. Listening to this song had was quite moving to me as my step-dad is going home to join his original wife! My mom will be going to join to my dad someday, I hope it's a long ways off. Thanks for reading this blog, comments and guest posts are always welcome.
