They say, "You can never go home again"
A discussion that I have had with Ned every year I would come back to the "Point"
Ned would always make this possible for me. He would make sure, I could come home again.
He would always with out fail, regale in the stories of my Grandfather and his brothers, under prepared fishing expeditions in the waters off the "Point" and down the channel. My favorite being, the forever failing boat motor that would leave them stranded too far from shore to row back quick enough to get out of harms way of the impending storm bearing down on them.
Ned always the learned and watchfull eye of common sense at the "Point" would race to his boat and full speed ahead to the vessel in distress.The whole time Ned would be listening to the bellowing laughs that only my Grandfather could produce, while Grandfather and his brother sat in the midst of a leaky,motor disabled,undersized boat, in the Atlantic Ocean.( My Grandfather, Thomas H. Chisholm had a wonderful philosophy about life in general) So why not..Laugh.
And Ned would reach them in time to cast the rope and tow them safely back to shore.Unharmed, and still laughing.
But now, so unexpectedly and so very sadly,"I can never go home again"
Ned has left us, and all of us that have known Ned, a piece of us have left with Ned.
I am teary eyed just writing this tribute, to think that I will never see Ned down at the "Point" waiting to greet us, with his alway charming smile, and open arms.
As my wife,Brenda has confided in me. She doesn't know how going to the "Point" will ever be the same without both Ned and Meg, together.I sadly tell her,"It never will be the same"
God Bless you Ned, and Godspeed.
