As many of you know my mom died in April of 2007.
It also turns out, that a women he was dating before he married my mother in 1948, just lost her husband as well this spring.
I say to hell with a mourning period, at his age (85) he can't afford to buy green bananas! They have been to dinner three times, and are going out again tonight.
I don't think anyone should be alone and if this helps them both out, I say it's a good thing!
Most people would think that it's a bit strange for him to go out after only three or four months, but I think it's great!
I don't think he will ever remarry, but just to have a companion would help him, as well as myself and my brothers!
