Our neighbor in Michigan for over twenty-seven years. He made it to 97. He was sharp as a tack until the end. Great storyteller. A second Grandpa. WW2 Vet, told me about being with the first U.S. Army group to enter Japan after the war. He was a Union Organizer in the late 40's and early 50's, just a great man! Every day he had two Milwaukee's Best, a Cigar, and a shot of Jack. (I'm surprised the Milwaukee's Best didn't kill him. Talk about nasty beer!) We miss him.

    Great photo and story. My Great Grandmother made it to 97. She had a shot of red wine every night! She always told us that it was for medicinal purposes only. LOL!!!!!!
