Denise's Father-in-law
  Re: (...)
I hope Denise does not mind me sharing her very sad news that her father-in-law, Marvin, died yesterday. He was such a large part of their lives forever, but especially since they moved him to Oregon with them and he was living nearby. They never missed a day talking or seeing him and he could not have been loved more or cared for better than by his son and loving daughter-in-law.

Denise just posted this tribute to him for the Memorial Day celebration....

We all share your sadness, Denise and Derek and know we love you both very much!!!
Retired and having fun writing cookbooks, tasting wine and sharing recipes with all my friends.

Oh, so sorry Denise and Derek. It is always difficult to lose a loved one. No matter what the age or circumstance. He will be missed.

Thank you all so much. Your kind words mean a great deal. It's been difficult day. Even knowing it was coming when he entered hospice a month ago it's not something you think of as real until it happens. He's left a large hole.

Hug your loved ones, tell them how much you love them. We were so fortunate to be with him on the day before. I took him a hamburger and vanilla shake, his favorite meal. Although he ate little of it. Derek played music for him and he spoke with his granddaughter on the phone. All the i's were dotted and t's crossed. He passed in his sleep that very night.
