I said good by to my family home today, My family lived in that house and neighborhood for 50 years. My cousin Tom and his wife, Valerie, came to help, in spite of their recent loss. When Tom was passing through the dining room, he said he smelt the pipe tobacco of Uncle Bob. I smelt it too. For a brief moment the fragrant smell of my Father's pipe went through the room. It gave us all a chill. With that, I must say that life does go on. Thank goodness for that.
