All Saints’ Day

It would have been my father-in-law's birthday today. He was a great and kind man, too often (i.e., always) putting others before himself. I knew him for just six or seven years, but he was always a true gent.

I've written and rewritten several things here, but I've deleted them all in favour of saying simply: Some people are born on exactly the right day of the year.

Red has, of course, paid full tribute over at her blog.

I read Red's tribute. I am sorry for your loss. The man sounds like a lovely person. Thoughts are with you and Red today.
