P. 28

Pat’s Tavern by Thomas J. Cranehad gotten to the point where it was just another day? My response was, “No, Dad, I don’t think that it ever will.” When my father died on January 6, 1979 in New Orleans, Louisiana, my wife and I had to travel there for my father’s funeral as he died quite suddenly from a heart attack. When we arrived I was surprised to find that he had wrapped Christmas lights all around the front porch. If someone were to ask me if I follow the Christmas Tradition, I would have to reply, without getting into any religious aspects or controversy, that Christmas is for Kids and that it follows the concept of giving or helping others. May Santa Claus rest in peace.28
