Neil's dad died this morning after a week in hospice care. I didn't see him many times, but he was always nice to me.  There was always a funny card and a check on my birthday and at Christmas.  And terrible puns (Neil's comes by that trait honestly) with a twinkle in his eye and a little knowing chuckle as we all groaned.  He was tremendously generous and good-natured about paying for our rehearsal dinner at the Chinese restaurant despite me turning it into dinner for 80 people (all the out-of-towners) instead of just the wedding party.   When Neil had surgery, he and his wife flew in and helped see him through it.  They hosted lovely dinners when we visited and invited the entire family so we didn't have to go multiple places to see them all.  They clued us in to things that have meant a lot such as "The West Wing" and Harry Potter books!  

This makes the FIFTH death in my close family in the past six months - Neil's brother Tim, my dear friend Lois, Mom, her brother - my Uncle MG - on Monday and now Neil's dad! *sigh All senior folks, all expected... but *sigh
