There are lots of advantages to living in a retirement home one of which is the friends you make with a wide range of ages 60-100+. One of the disadvantages then is the death of these friends.
We lost a dear friend last week. Dunbar was 92. He and his wife were some of the first friends we made here. Dunbar gave my husband Dan an airplane model to fly from our 11th floor. Dan assembled it and had Dunbar make the first flight. We still have that plane.
Dunbar was a gentleman and he will be sorely missed.
