T'was many years ago when Jason, several others and I, shared the daily commute to Calvin College. Some evenings were spent doing homework = "problem solving" = too.
My condolence to Shirley and the extended family; you had a fine Papa ~ now gone "home"

T'was many years ago that Jason car-shared with several more, on a daily commute to Calvin College. Fond memories of the "home-work" problem solving we did some evenings.
My condolence to the extended family; you had a fine Papa; gone "home".
