Today you would have been 74 years old.
You left this world five and a half years ago, but what is remembered, lives.
I listen to The Bandstand and sing along with some of the music you loved.
I play some of the classical composers you were fond of, and am glad that you understood this sublime form of human expression.
I remember your lessons, and I hope, finally, to be making myself into someone you'd be very proud of.
Fare Well, Dr. John Ramsay Anderson-scientist, writer, secular humanist and sterling father.
I continue to miss you.
