I met up with AR at the funeral home this evening. He will post his thanks you's etc in a few days, once he gathers his thoughts.
He did ask that I thank everybody for the beautiful flowers, it is a huge blue and gold splay of what I guess to be (and it is a guess) gold asters and what might be blue-belles. It was quite pretty and unique. Good job to those who took the time to select it and have it sent.
He also wants everybody to know he's doing ok and REALLY REALLY appreciates the outpouring of sympathy for him.
What a lousy way to finally meet one of my better friends on here. What a big gentle man he is too. What a CRUSHING HANDSHAKE he can give, without trying. The man must have milked cows for a living!! Sheesh!
