We received the news today that a very dear family friend (Mr. A) of Mr Minion has passed away. Mr. A and his wife Mrs. E lived across the street from Mr Minion’s family when he was growing up, and they were like grandparents to him. I have heard so many stories about all the hours spent on their back porch just talking, about Mr. A showing Mr Minion how to make better Pine Wood Derby cars, how electrical circuits work. How Mrs E would poke fun at the “boys and their toys.”
Mr Minion has lost a grandfather and good friend. If you are the praying sort, please say one for Mrs E, Mr Minion, and Mr A’s family and friends.
