On Standby

The Knitting Asylum is temporarily on standby.

My father, Adam Rabeneck, died last Saturday at the age of 88. He was a disabled veteran of World War Two, worked as an accountant, and was a lifelong resident of New Orleans. He loved baseball and football, especially the New Orleans Saints. He loved animals, and, above all, dearly loved his family.

He died of sudden cardiac arrest after a long history of heart disease.

His mother was the first person to teach me how to knit, crochet and sew.

Dad had a lovely funeral with an Army honor guard, and went to meet his Maker in a pair of hand-knit socks.

I'll post again as soon as we have some things settled down.

If your folks are still alive, call them today.

Dez -- You and Dave are in our hearts, thoughts and prayers during this difficult time. I hope and believe that in time, you'll remember the happy times with your Dad.
