Some words, in memory of my father

Georgius Piscator, 19272012

My father would have been 94 today.

When he passed away a few years ago, I made a list of some words that I thought described him well, with the intention of trying to craft a remembrance poem.

The best-laid plans of mice and men… I haven’t got a round tuit yet. But I recently came across that list of words lurking on my PC and wanted to do something with them – before I too pass on into the Great Unknown.

And so, I am proud to present a word cloud of my list:

George: affable, buoyant, congenial, constant, convivial, dauntless, devoted, enduring, equable, equitable, gallant, generous, genial, genuine, hearty, indulgent, merry, mischievous, nonchalant, polite, sanguine, spirited, staunch, sterling, tranquil, true, vigorous, warm, whimsical
Some words, in memory of my father

Rest in peace, Dad 💗

    Your father was my present age when he died. I hope to merit half of those words at my passing.

    Some of those words indicate that your father used his time well on this planet, and was a wonderful role model. You should release the frog or is it wind the frog…. do write the poem now.

    My father would have been 102 had death not intervened. One of the greatest privileges of my life was cleaning house for him in the years before he could no longer sustain his independence alone. I am planning to publish memories of Bill Ziegler, Sr. under the folder tab BillZiegler1921. Real soon now, as they say.
