I remember that ride, it was just like you described, all of a sudden we were wondering where he went. No complaints, nothing, I couldn’t believe he kept going as long as he did.
All these stories remind me that the things we do each day are our legacy and memories that we are giving to our friends and family. That Carly Simon song “anticipation” got way overplayed for that stupid ketchup commercial, but the line in there which says “These are the good old days”, is pretty profound.
He will be missed. Hard to find a face that’s always smiling.
