In Memory of Francis Gritzmacher

Well, we are in July and it feels no closer to getting out of this pandemic lockdown. It feels like we're stuck in time. Progress has been tough in fighting the COVID-19 outbreak and every time we make inroads here in NY, it seems like the rest of the country undoes it all. I was beginning to feel optimistic that we might be clear to get together by late summer or fall, but now with travel bans in place for people traveling from other states, it looks like the best hope is a vaccine, whenever that comes.
So I just wanted to put something up here to show some kind of activity and keep everyone aware that even if nothing is going on, it's not because we've forgotten.
Everyone be safe. Practice social distancing when appropriate. Wear your masks, please... Get out and get some fresh air and sunshine when you can and stay so we can all get through this. I know it's been tough for me to do, but I'm going to try to keep healthy in the meanwhile. You're all Frank's family, which makes us family, so take care and we can all get together to celebrate his time with us someday soon.

As time goes on in this Coronavirus world, it looks like it may be some time before we can safely hold a memorial celebration. New York has been doing a reasonable job of managing the pandemic, but other areas don't seem to be.

I think we know now how Frank felt being confined to a hospital room. We're all cooped up and feeling pretty stressed about it. But he always tried to take it in stride and I'm trying to do so as well. I think of him often. I think of something he would know about and I would have wanted to ask him about. I realize I valued his thoughts and opinions a lot. He was a good friend, even to his ol' Dad.

It's been a while since there has been anything to post here. Like everyone, we've been hunkered down, riding out the pandemic thing. It's really not a very big thing to me, since I am retired and don't have a job to go to. I spent a great deal of time home anyway. I'd been avoiding getting involved in any commitments anyway, so that I could be free to help Frank. Now, the corona virus is tying me up.

I'd really like to be free to change that, but I'm not anxious to rush things. I know some people are hurting and need to get back to their jobs and that income, but I'm happy I am in a position to help by staying home.
