to pop!

The family went to dinner last night after the wake. My husband and I had discussed a toast to Pop. My brother and his wife had the same idea. And we got my cousin and his fiancee to join us.

To Pop!

Pop loved his Manhattans. He made them every night around dinnertime. It just might be his secret to living well into his 90s!

My cousin told us that they had to take Pop's liquor away (or, ration it so he had enough for just his evening drinks) when he was caught drinking one at 9 a.m. about a year ago. He was probably home alone at the time -- Nan has spent time in the hospital or rehab. They had an aide visit a couple times a day to help, but he was essentially alone.

We got a laugh out of that story.

Yes, it was a sad couple of days, but it was also good to see family, and share our stories.

We toasted grandma with Gin and Tonics. That was her drink of choice. I have a picture, and will post it once I get home!
