Today (November 14, 2006) is the lst Anniversary of the passage of my dear sweet daddy, Mel. At high noon a small ceremony was conducted poolside as I tossed a pinch of Mel in the water. (I had always tried to get him in the pool and failed...he was a farm boy from Oklahoma and saw swimming as too leisure an activity.)
Mel lived at the Sands for the last year of his life and everyone who met him was charmed by his wit and gracious interest in who they were and what they did. He was a lovely guy and we miss him.
