CB's dad has had health problems ever since we met him; however, the last six months he has had several hospitalizations. Unfortunately, we knew there was really no cure.
Pops (what CB called him) was always so friendly. He was a talker and brutally honest. (Well, except when he called me a "girl." The man was a charmer, too.) You didn't have to be in the presence of Pops and his sons very long to know how much they loved each other.
He died in his sleep sometime late Sunday night or early Monday morning. I know he will be missed.
I hope he's at rest now.
