07:11 – The phone call we’d been expecting from Hospice came at 2:21 this morning. Barbara’s dad died at 2:20, and they notified us immediately. We drove down to Hospice. Frances and Al drove over to Creekside to pick up Sankie and bring her to Hospice.

  1. Condolences. It is a relief as well as sorrow. Death is the final phase of life. Dutch had a good life, lived to 90+. Celebrate his success, not his passing.

  2. My condolences for you and Barbara’s loss.

  3. Sorry to hear about Dutch’s passing. It sounds to me that he lived a good and interesting life.

  4. My condolences. He is finally at peace. And I’ll echo ech’s post about the Greatest Generation.

  5. My condolences to you and Barbara. And your mother in law. Man, he was a tough Marine! They are the best of us.

  6. Sincerest sympathies. Always tough to say goodbye forever to someone dear. As Ray says, it is ironic that it also brings peace to those left behind.

  7. Sorry to hear this Bob, thoughts and best wishes to you and Barbara for the coming weeks from UKLand.

  8. Our thoughts and prayers from northern Vermont; Requiescat in pace, Dutch. A long tough life comes to a release from suffering and pain, and may blessings and peace come to all his family and friends. Many thanks also for his service to our country and an exemplar to us all.

  9. I don’t have a GM car, but here’s a video; it involves jumping two OBD terminals, turning the car on and clicking the remotes you want to add…

    Take Care,
