This is in memory of my dad who would be 100 today had he lived that long. He loved cars and always fixed our cars. He would take us to Pep Boys with him to buy parts when we were kids. He kept a gas log book in the glove compartment. He had the coolest tools - really old ones and a flash light made of brass that he kept in the car that swiveled. Some of the old cool cars I remember we had were a 1950 Ford, a 1955 Ford convertable, a 1958 Mercury (his dad had the 1957 Chevy) Anyway, he would love this site if he were alive today and that I was on it trying to save $ on gas because he was all about saving a buck since he went through the depression. RIP Dad!

It reads as your father lived a good life. He's now in a place of unfathomable joy, happy in knowing that his family and friends will one day join him in that joy that last so much longer than life on Earth, for a length of time (that again) we can not fathom.

Peace & Love to U, & all whom U have contact.
