Goodbye, Farfar

This past Thursday, my step-father-in-law, Peter, passed away unexpectedly at home in Sweden. "Farfar" is the Swedish word for paternal grandfather and what Chip called Peter. We told Chip the sad news. He responded quietly, "Farfar is my friend." Farfar was a friend to a lot of people. I expect his services to be standing room only. Ah, Peter, I will miss our debates and verbal jousts. Goodbye, Farfar. You are missed.
