I hereby dub you the 'good son.' You are a prince for doing what you've done Jerry. I was struck with a little bit of melancholy when yous said you were going to Houston but I guess our paths have more of a chance of crossing if you're there as opposed to where you're at now.
Stay strong. c

I know you are very happy with the memories of the last few years at home with your parents. Even though the inevitable end is sad.

You are a terrific person. And you work for some terrific people.

Good on you.

Cool Runnings!!

I hope that you will look back on your time "Back Home Again" with no regrets. Doing what you have for your parents is the right thing to do, and I hope you feel that it was an honor to do it. Maybe someday, when you need some help when you are older, someone will do the same for you. You must work for a good company that will allow you to work away from their headquarters. Hang in there with your Dad. I've enjoyed reading the stories about him the last few years.

You are a good son, brother, uncle and friend. I've loved every minute that you've been in Indiana but understand the need to get back to your life.

I grew up on a 25 acre farm. I started driving a tractor in the field when I was probably about 10 years old. My mom sold the farm in 2000, one year after my dad passed away. I took photos of the entire property from different angles. Until I got married, that was the only place I had ever lived. I miss the farm more than I ever imagined. I took it for granted when my parents lived there. My daughter planted a tree there that she received at school when she was in 2nd grade (she is 26 now.) After my dad's funeral, we replanted a tree that had come up volunteer in the fence row. It was set near my daughter's tree. All that had to be left behind when the farm was sold. I really miss my dad. He was only 72. I know it is bittersweet for you to take care of your dad knowing he will be gone some day. You are a good son to take care of your parents. Thanks for sharing your blog.
