Bob’s step father ‘Pop’ passed away this afternoon. We will be leaving for North Carolina tonight. So I will be out of pocket for a week or so.
William Sawrey Sr was a fine gentleman who adored Bob’s mom. Bob’s father had been killed in a car accident a year or so before Bill began courting Miriam, Bob’s mom. He married her when she was a widow with 6 children under the age of 14. And they preceded to have four more of their own. And if he had just sheltered, clothed and fed these kids, he would have stars in his crown, but he made sure they each had the extra little things, band instruments, uniforms, cars when they learned to drive, vacations in the NC mountains and even to Disneyworld. He was a fine man and raised a fine man, which I am eternally grateful for – and I loved him very much.
So, dear friend, I will talk to you in a few days. Take care and stay well.
