my father-in-law, clyde zettle died last wednesday (july 10, 2013). he was a truly amazing man.
i was one of probably dozens who always got a card with cash & a note saying “go have fun” for their birthdays.
for years, clyde & his wife joanne hosted a three day party labor day weekend for their birthdays at their one bathroom cabin on camano island, WA.
this gathering included generations of family & friends. they finally had to rent porta pottys. at night you had to be careful not to trip over people sleeping on the floor.
clyde was intelligent, wise, loving & utterly without pretension. he never asked for anything more than those around him have a good time.
this doesn’t begin to say all that could be said about this special person.
the world will be a poorer place without him.
