Tailing the Komets

Playing in front of parents a special treat for Komets

It's a very nice story, Blake.

It should also serve as a reminder to everyone who still has their parents to give them a hug.  If not that, then at least call them. Either way, it only takes a few minutes.  Time has a way of getting by us and when time runs out, it is gone forever. 

In 1957 my father had a stroke taking some Boy Scouts to a Komet hockey game.  He died a few hours later and I still, when sitting in my seat, think of that.

Thanks for letting us know about your dad.  Sorry Alan, you lost him so young. Lost my mom this year and my dad is still hanging in there at 93.  I have been very fortunate.

Alan, I know its a log time ago but my prayers also. How tragic for you at such a young age. Im sure he is proud of the way you turned out. Im sure, somehow, he still shares with you,your enthusiasm for the K's .  I had to respond to this. Great fathers  need acknowledged.

Thanks to Stick and RG2 for the kind words they both wrote.  I've introduced Komet hockey to both my children.  They have season tickets also.  I found that it is a good way to spend quality time with them, doing something we all enjoy.  Maybe, in a small way, I have repaid my father for the little time he could spend with me and his love for the Komets.

The whole thing came up because of the Komets getting to spend time with some parents.

Ok, 'nuff of that.
