I just can’t believe that my Dad passed away January 1994. It is coming up to 26 years ago. And I think about him just about every day. I even talked about him tonight at a Christmas party reminiscing to another lawyer the influence he had on me. Leonard Cooper was born January 4;1926 and passed away January 24 1994. He was only 68. I say that because as I write this I’m 66 and still feel young despite my recent health issues. 68 was way too early.
But I look to him for guidance every day. What would he have done? Am I living up to his expectations?
He wasn’t perfect. But he cared deeply for his family. He might not show it but he aLways said his family knows how he feels about them. And he was right. But showing emotion and saying it out loud is always good. Just visiting my life on this Wednesday evening.
