Thanks again folks for your kind comments.

We buried him this morning before the heat became too oppressive. It was out in boonies at a family cemetery. We brought four shovels with us and filled in the grave ourselves. The pastor got a bit teary and choked up at this gesture and said he have never seen anyone do this before. We just couldn't stand the thought of a back-hoe dumping dirt on him. Figured we'd do it instead.

Have a bunch of cousins around and their support has been invaluable and greatly appreciated. 

Haven't been able to properly toast him myself yet. Will do so at the first opportunity.
The first principle is that you must not fool yourself, and you are the easiest person to fool. -Richard P. Feynman
