Rest in peace, neighbour. You were a wonderful person, and I'm glad I knew you.

He had a good long life... he was nearly 96, and still living independently. (He even drove himself to the hospital!) He stormed the beaches in France in WWII, his great-uncle wrote "In Flanders Fields", and, as a kid, I always wanted to reach past his fence to eat the raspberries in his garden. (I resisted.) When I told him this recently, he said that he wished that I had, and asked if I wanted any of the apples from his tree. He was a great character. :)

Sounds like a life well lived. Thanks for sharing this wee bit with us.
