My Father In Law Nate Cabot

Yesterday my father in law passed away.  He was 89 years old. He was a loving and faithful  husband to his wife Lucy for  65 years and a supportive, loving  and caring father and grandfather.   Nate led a full and happy life and enriched ours with his tender ways, his humor and his good nature. He always had a joke for us and I always believed everything that he'd tell me and then with a smile he'd say, "Oh Barb you're too easy!" and I'd laugh and say, "Oh dad you fooled me again!" We will all miss Nate Cabot, my 2nd dad.
 My daughter Aria posted this these two photos and this T. S. Elliot quote which I wanted to share here.

"Neither from nor towards; at the still point, there the dance is, But neither arrest nor movement. And do not call it fixity, Where past and future are gathered. Neither movement from nor towards, Neither ascent nor decline. Except for the
 point, the still point, There would be no dance, and there is only the dance. I can only say, there we have been: but I cannot say where. And I cannot say, how long, for that is to place it in time." - T.S. Eliot, Burnt Norton

My other daughter Athena posted the following with this photo:

"Saying goodbye to my Grandpa Nate today. Remembering 
fondly the life of a wonderful family man, WWII veteran,
firefighter, the best joke teller, and one hell of a banjo
player. He was one of a kind."

Rest in Peace my dear Father-in-law.  We will miss your gentle and kind presence.  You
were a dedicated family man, a wonderful father and grandfather and someone we could
always count on for unconditional love and support.
