Two of our own have suffered a tremendous loss.

Swanshaft and The Shore have lost a brother and a son, respectively.

They are both in my thoughts and prayers. I'll offer more info tomorrow.

Bummer......must be something about this spring we are having.

I just lost 2 old friends in less than one month.

Sunday is the memorial for Kermit at our private golf course.

And the other is being planned for maybe over in Seattle.

I met Lonny Ritter back in 1972 when I was a 14

And Kermit Cooley was part of our golf pitching wedge contest and a friend since it started 16 years ago and I knew him before that.

My condolences...

I give you this one thought to keep --
I am with you still -- I do not sleep.
I am the thousand winds that blow,
I am the diamond glints on snow,
I am the sunlight on ripened grain,
I am the gentle autumn rain.
When you awaken in the morning's hush,
I am the swift, uplifting rush
of quiet birds in circled flight.
I am the soft stars that shine at night.
Do not think of me as gone --
I am with you still -- in each new dawn.

If you are unable to attend, please email your thoughts, memories, wishes, pictures, etc to ihsgeo@yahoo.com, so that we may create a book for Athena to let her see as she gets older how many lives Daniel/Duffy had touched and how loved
he was.



Daniel Duffy Swantek, born on March 23, 1978 passed peacefully in his sleep on Saturday May 8th, 2010. He is survived by his wife, Dhira Lawrence, and his 3 year-old daughter, Athena Lalita Swantek. He is also survived by his father Daniel and wife Sandy; his mother Patricia; Dhira’s parents, Emily Chaison and Marty Vielma; his sister, Shannon, and his brother, Kevin.
In his early years, Daniel is remembered for his love for Lansdale Catholic High School and his inspiring athletic accomplishments including winning the PA state championships in both track and cross country. He also gave exemplary performances for St. Joseph’s University Track and Cross Country teams. He was well loved by his whole community in Lansdale and he touched many throughout these years through volunteer work and strong social and family values. His love for music took him on many travels.
After moving to Oregon, Daniel became a strong spiritual leader in his meditation community, Dharmalaya, and an unfailing environmental advocate. He was the founder of Green Solutions Printing which was a company committed to his beliefs of being an socially and environmentally conscious corporation. He became very active in the sustainable business community.
He was committed to his family first and foremost. He was driven by a need to improve the lives of those around him and the beautiful world he cherished. His biggest passion throughout his life was to uplift humanity.

Daniel touched the lives of everyone he met and aspired to make everyone’s experiences in this lifetime more just and inspiring. He is loved by all who knew him and will be missed more than words can say.

So sorry guys ... I had to put our 16 year old dog to sleep a couple nights ago but that pales in comparison to the grief you must feel. I guess the only silver lining is the more you feel the lose the more they meant to you in life ...

Well I made the trip today to the memorial for that old friend of mine and there was lots of people there from his almost 72 years on this Earth.

We all hit those funny colored golf balls like he used to do for the pitching wedge contest.....which nobody won again ($1,500 was the kitty)

Big display of pictures from when he was a kid all the way until his last days.

Lots of stories from the guys that were with him in the 60's and early 70's

Here is a old picture of Kermit playing the bass in his younger days and you may recognize the guy in front of him playing guitar in 1969 smile

It was a nice warm day and there was so many salmon cooked up and shrimp and all the rest of that "Cravn" food in the club house.

I did a funeral, burial, and post service wake this morning for my brother-in-law's father.

Fred Steinhagen, Elletsville, IN. Great guy. 85 great years, 1 bad one.
Stood in the rain at the gravesite for the VFW's 12(?) gun salute. 4 guys, 3 shots each.
