My brothers & I always laughed that Dad wanted me to have it so that it would stay prestine, because I can't drive it. But, I always thought my nephew or one of my brothers that knew cars and appreciated them should have it when the day came. Well, on the way back from picking my son up from colllege, just hours after my Dad passed, our mini van broke down. (After 4hours of waiting for AAA, we called they told us about 3- 31/2 more hours....) we had it towed to our mechanic. Who told us the next day it was gone. cam shaft snapped.
Well, everyone has decided it was Dad. And that I am to have that vehicle to be chauffered around in. Honestly, Dad had a will and everything was in writing anyway, but we all are getting a chuckle out of Dad finalizing everything! That's the way Dad, you cross every t and dot every i .
Great story!

Thank you. We are all doing okay. Each of us are taking the steps we as individuals need to, and continue to support each other as a family. I guess the upside of having dealt with death so often, is that we now realize it is not something you put off dealing with.
Thank each of you for your prayers and/or support. All prayers past present and future are appreciated.
As always my disboard friends are remembered in my prayers as well.

Just adding to this thread because you all have been so wonderful and comforting. I just received a call that my cousin 48yrs old just had a heart attack. I don't know many details yet other than they are operating on him as I type this.
If you all don't mind thinking positive and if you are a praying person I sure would appreciate it.

Just an update. My cousin is resting comfortably. They found a few blockages and took care of them. They said he was very lucky to have gotten to the hospital when he did.

Thank you to anyone who has/will continue to pray for a quick and full recovery.
