Bad News Today

 My parent's engagement photo.  I made this collage for their 55th.

 These are two collages I made for his birthday one year.
I thank you all for your prayers for my dad but he passed yesterday morning.  He and my mom had been together for 59 years.  We are all doing ok.  I guess I am still in shock as it is hard to believe that he is gone.  My dad was one of those incredible people who knew a little bit about every subject.  He was always learning new things and had an incredible love of books.  My dad Iz Ungar was a polymer chemist and even after he retired he worked until he was 79 travelling worldwide consulting.  He had over 50 US Patents to his name and 100 international patents.

Thank you for all your words of comfort.
