The saying 'The End of an Era' gets bandied about a lot. Hell, I'm not innocent. I'm sure you can pick apart a post or two-hundred on this very blog where I dared to type the phrase.
I'm going to do it again today.
You see, yesterday afternoon - I found out that my neighbour has passed away. He was just a few days removed from celebrating his 90th.
I've known him for all of my life, so it's peculiar to think he won't be around anymore. He was a good neighbour and a better man.
His wife for over fifty years passed away a number of years ago, so I'm going to take solace in the thought that they're finally back together.
