What an inspirational man. For anyone to read his accomplishments and the numerous selfless acts and not be touched would be impossible. His accomplishments will continue even after his passing. My condolences to the family.
Wow, thank you all! If we could all be as lucky as "Tooey" was..he had taken his afternoon stroll around our barn (center island of stalls with a paved aisle all the way around - ideal for an old man with a walker) and was coming to our house for dinner. He walked down the stairs, got in the car...and let out a deep sigh and...went... No illness or loss of his sharp mind - he had a slow old shuffle but was still very active. We had loads of family all week with a private ceremony on Friday. I'm sure there are more great men like him, but they are few and far between and I seriously doubt I'll ever know anyone like him in my lifetime. Always spoke his mind, never unkind, very generous and he loved his family. I honestly keep expecting him to just drop by like he used to.
There will be a memorial service for him at the Marlborough Hunt Club on Saturday, March 16th at 11 am.
