C Crino said...My condolences to you. A sad way to end the year. You have, however, given him a tribute through this blog, even if he never knew the impact.

Jess said...My condolences on your loss. I hope having so magnificently preserved some family history is a comfort, even if your father wasn't really able to grasp the significance. He still may have appreciated how important the family history is to you, and that may have been more comfort and pride than you know.

I'm so sorry to hear this. From what you've written, he was fortunate enough to enjoy a pretty good life.It's humbling to realize that there are still people among us who lived through 'long-ago' historical events and eras: people to whom these things weren't ancient history but rather stories from their own lives. One ordinary man's lifespan, and yet look at the world of changes that lifespan encompassed.My sympathy to the Lamin family. -Gustav's great-granddaughter.

Anonymous said... Oh, Bill, My heartfelt condolences to you and your family for the loss of your dad. No matter how much it has been anticipated, no one is ever ready. I will continue to hold you and your family in my prayers. You have left a wonderful legacy for your family - and I would like to think your Dad/Willie did - or does - understand it at some level. Certainly Harry's family and their legacy lives on and will as long as any of us are around to point people to your blog and remind them of the sacrifices that your father and grandfather made so that we might be able to read this record...Gratefully,

I hadn't viewed the blog for some time, but just found your updates about your Dad's medical condition.

I have read with fascination all of your great-grandfather's experiences in World War I, as so competently put together by Bill. You may know that the last combat veteran of the Great War recently died in Australia. The end of an era.

I wish Bill the very best for his recovery and many more years of life with his family.
