"...my last memory of your dad was dinner in SF.... I can't remember the name of the resto, but I do remember the conversation I had with your dad about alternative medicine. I remember thinking, "Gosh, he's so well read and has such a rare curiousity for life." And despite his health, I really thought his strong spirit would bring him a longer life. But at least now, he's with your mom. I really do believe that. I've always admired the relationship you have with your parents - so much love and laughter in your family - which is truly special and rare...and untouchable. No matter what, your mom and dad will always be with both of you."
