79

March 14, 2011


He would have been 79 years young today.  I say young because in comparison, 78 was young.  My Grandfather, Ernest Russell, was 104 years old when he passed.  My Grandmother, Annie, was weeks away from 98.  And their parents lived into their 90s as well.  My Dad always had in mind his life expectancy would follow suit.

78 was older than some, but too young for him.


Happy 79th birthday, Dad.  Hope you are celebrating somewhere with a lemon cake.  Sure wish I could have made it for you.
