The Sunday crossword--a family tradition

THIS ONE'S FOR YOU, DAD

This will be my third walk for the Jimmy Fund. Given that this year’s walk comes two days before my 65th birthday, I guess that makes me a late bloomer.


I walk for the Jimmy Fund kids—and let me tell you, Brock Holt’s devotion to those kids catapults him to the top of my list of all-time favorite Sox players.


I walk for my late wife Yoli, who died of breast cancer at age 43. I walk for Peter Lundquist, late husband of my wife Bonnie, who was 37 when he died of lymphoblastic lymphoma. I walk for so many friends and neighbors who have lost loved ones to this dread disease.


And this year, I walk especially for my dad, Lionel Edes, who died on Saturday, February 23, after being diagnosed with metastatic Stage 4 cancer just over three weeks earlier. . We had him in hospice care at home, and we were all together when we celebrated his 87th birthday, 12 days before he died. We all realize how fortunate we were to have had him for as long as we did.


My dad was what we call a good guy. A man of faith, a loving husband and father, a great friend to me, known to his grandchildren and great-grandkids as “Opa.” He will have a front-row seat when I cross the finish line on Sept. 22.


Thanks in advance for the love and support. It has been my privilege to be surrounded by so much care and concern and affection. I’m a lucky guy.


Gordon
