There are worse places in the world...

That you could be for a funeral in the winter/early spring than Key Largo.

We had my father-in-law's funeral ceremony on Monday. We chartered the 1963 Trumpy yacht Tireless and scattered his ashes from the yacht at the point of the breakwater at the Anglers Club of Key Largo. That evening we had a huge celebration-of-life party with a jazz band, just like he requested in his will.

This was the view from his house the next evening.

I miss you Fred. More than you will ever know. Thank you for the beautiful sunset. I wish I could have shared it with you.
