I just got word that my father has died. He was a wonderful man, and I’ll really miss him. I love you Dad!
Ernest Begun (1915-2008)
Update: Thanks so much to everyone who posted and emailed such kind comments on my father’s passing. I really appreciate your thoughtfulness.
Here’s the somewhat unorthodox eulogy I read at my father’s funeral:
My father, who was very into politics, always enjoyed my political limericks. I’d like to think he’d also enjoy this limerick about him:
My dad, known as Ernest Begun
Will be missed by his wife and his son,
And his daughter, of course,
Cause our dad was the source
Of much joy and support and, yes, fun.
