ALZHEIMER'S--A Send-Off for the "Old Sage"

Joe's hands as he held the latest generation of our family, 2015

I haven't written anything into my blog since December 5, just been busy with all the things that go along with a loss.
This Saturday, January 14th, we're gathering at the golf course Joe so loved to give him the send-off he requested, a party not a funeral. Like all the parties we hosted over the years, there will be food and drink and music...and cake. I know there will be many stories from family and friends. (In Joe’s 78 years he gave us a lot to talk about.)  And before the party ends, we'll toast the "Old Sage" or, "Joe Cool" as he would have preferred to be called.

I'll have a lot to write about.

Somehow, I think "Al" may be tampering with the weather because the forecast is grizzly with more snow on the way. Al was like that you know.
