This picture unfortunately represents both the beginning and the end of life. The two gentlemen in the photo are Doral Miller, age 96 and Jacob Collins, his great-grandson, age 3 weeks. Doral is also my wife’s grandfather.
A short bout with cancer that started just before this photo was taken claimed his life yesterday. He had a full healthy life most of us only dream of – and he made an impression on everyone who crossed his path.
A beautiful tribute to Doral is over at the Greeley Tribune: Filling divots in the sky
