"Security is mostly a superstition. It does not exist in nature, nor do the children of men as a whole experience it. Avoiding danger is no safer in the long run than outright exposure. Life is either a daring adventure, or nothing. " -Helen Keller

He's gone...Oh my God he's gone...

my father-in-law died this morning. Sigifredo Cruz-Vega was one of the finest men I know. He loved his family. He loved his country. And, many times, he lived through things he shouldn't have lived through. He was a highly decorated war veteran who thought so little of the politics of Washington that he turned down an appointment to the highest position an NCO can achieve...Sergeant Major of the Army...because that would mean serving at the Pentagon. He was a father to 7 children, all who are now outstanding men and women in their own right. But, most importantly, he was someone we loved and we will miss him desperately.

Go with God dad...we love you.

I'm so sorry for you all. I know that my husband, Henny's husband Ken, and Jen's mom and other lost ones will all be meeting him up there. They'll show him the ropes...then he'll take over by the sound of it.

He's not suffering, though you are. I can only say, I'm thinking of you.
