A Death In The Family

Yesterday we got news that my wife's father, Tom Scimone, passed away. He was 82 and had health problems since he had a stroke in 2000. My wife is in Maryland with her family and I will join her tomorrow. My father-in-law was a good man. He worked hard all his life, enjoyed 20 years of retirement, had a winter home in Florida and got to see his children and grandchildren regularly.

He was a good father-in-law. He never interfered with our family matters, was always upbeat and positive and was a great conversationalist. I will miss him but am glad I got to know him for 32 years. Thank you, Dad Scimone, for living a good life, for giving me your daughter as a wife and for setting a great example of hard work and commitment to family.
