LSV

I contemplated the sheaves of wheat on the casket that described his life so well. He had been driven to the city by his son for a surgical procedure that week. Looking out at the fields, he felt the wheat in the palm of his hand and rubbed gently.

My Father-in-Law died December 23, 2006 at the age of 91.
