Goodbye, Quincy

I am saddened to share the news that we had to put Quincy to sleep today. His age and arthritis made movement for him difficult, and for the past week and a half… he was largely unable to move around without assistance.

Remembering Edra Staffieri

While this blog isn’t a terribly popular one, it serves as a place for me to record things. And I wanted to share my memories of Ms. Staffieri, and to have those memories last a little longer than social media allows. Because she was pretty darn awesome.

Red Shamrocks: Remembering Ann Paeth

To see so many shamrocks (and red shamrocks to boot) made me feel good, and reminded me of Ann. I am used to seeing these in such small quantities – a single pot, a few stalks.

She was in hospice care towards the end, and a lot of her family was able to stop by and visit, before she left. This is a photo of us with Janice,…

Memorial for David Citino

I was in Columbus this weekend, to attend David Citino’s memorial service. We showed up close to when it was scheduled to start, and Matt and Juliet and I found ourselves in the back of the auditorium. The seats had already been filled, and the entire event was standing-room only. The entire setup was very formal – a podium on…
