Just when you thought you couldn’t digest any more turkey after Thanksgiving dinner yesterday, we’re serving up another generous plateful of funny turkey with all the trimmings for dessert. All courtesy of those whacky kooks – excuse me – cooks, Ron Pastore, Ralph Ganis, et al, from the the hell’s kitchen for history, formerly known as The History Channel. Just make sure you save room for three more big, goofy helpings.
SUDDEN DEATH – DIARY OF A COVID VICTIM . . . Now on Stray Leaves, our family is fortunate to read the social media diary of our relative Judy Rae Davis Gibson. In a swift 18 days, Judy lost her husband to Covid-19. Judy now shares her painful story with us. We can feel and sense the terror and tragedy when this virus suddenly strikes.

FRANK YOUNGER'S MEMORIAL SERVICE . . .
November 18, 1940 – August 28, 2021. Frank Younger sadly passed away suddenly at age 80 as a result of an accident in his home. Frank was predeceased by his parents, Paul and Margaret (and stepmother Irene). He is survived by his wife, Sharon, and their three children, Pauline (Mike), Matt (Zoe), and Tom (Tamara), and grandson, Paul. Frank loved his family and always enjoyed sharing his encouragement, wisdom, and inimitable sense of humor with them.
His contributions to the lives of many include his commitment to his career as an Astronomer at the Dominion Astrophysical Observatory (Herzberg Institute of Astrophysics), his ongoing participation in local classical orchestras (including the odd instrument repair), and mentoring of many friends in any way he could. Frank’s recent endeavors included attending and helping run the James Younger Gang club as well as writing and reading his poetry.
Frank has often enjoyed and been seen as having contrasting traits including riding his Harley motorcycle to a string quartet practice or cleaning his antique gun collection prior to reading his latest poetry writings to gangster club members. His unique character and compassion for all of his friends and family will be missed.

I was devastated when I received the email. I spoke to Frank and Sharon a month or so ago. We had a nice talk. I will miss him dearly.
I was fortunate enough to have met and talked with Frank. He impressed me as a nice and knowledgeable man.
