Robert B. Gero (May 4, 1929 - July 3, 2006)

We got word tonight from my sister Mary that Dad passed away peacefully at around 9:30 PST.

Tomorrow we get on an early flight to Wisconsin as Nicki, Kate and I help Mom -- along with my sisters and their families -- to prepare for Dad's funeral.

Kate will get a chance to meet her aunts, uncles and cousins much sooner than we had expected. It's kind of ironic really. I wonder if my Dad was leaving us with one last lesson.

Don't let the distance keep you apart.

Thanks Dad for everything you've shared, even going out.

I love you and will miss you.

We went throught the same scenario with my father about 8 years ago.

As much as you prepare it's always sudden - no matter how long it takes.

You and your family will be in our prayers.

My thoughts are with you, Paul.
My father passed away in 1972. I still think of him often, especially since the last two summers I have spent here in my hometown photographing.
