Elwin Allen "Al" Stone

This morning, my dad passed away peacefully with my mom at his side.  In another 4 days, he would have been 83 years old.

I'm sorry to hear that. I'm sure you feel lucky to have had a wonderful father, judging by your previous blog posts about him. You always honored him. Safe travels when you head to Florida.

David, Mom loves it! (And so do I.) She laughted out loud at the "specil cat." Wonderful tribute to Dad. Can you bring this on a flash drive so we can show it at the reception? Excellent music!

Sorry for your loss, he seemed like a good man.

I wanted to thank everyone again for the comments and for the many messages we received. All my brothers and sisters - there are seven of us - and most of the grandkids were able to attend the funeral in Brandon, and it was very well planned and carried out, making my mother very pleased.

My father had done an exceptional job of planning for this event and it was a reminder of just how organized he was. If we can learn anything from the loss, it is that as adults, we all owe it to our families to be prepared for the eventual end. Eva and I, still in our 40's, have talked about planning for this, but haven't done much more than that. This is the push needed to get it done.

For those interested, I have added a tab at the top with this video and the obit.

Thanks again for your kind words.
