A wonderful, heartfelt tribute to your father. I hope some day Michael has as nice to say about me as you have for your father. I remember when I was in my early 20's and realized that my father wasn't invincible. Now in my early 60's I begin to see my own gradual (very gradual, hopefully) decline. Erik Erikson had it right in his last stage in life of Integrity vs. Despair. One must just keep moving forward and remain positive and productive even as abilities and interests shift. Your intellectual curiosity and caring for others will continue, but there is also satisfaction in concrete achievements such as woodworking or knitting. Jerry (simoogle)
