Loren Nancarrow – R.I.P.

Loren Nancarrow, RIP

When Susie saw me before paddling out to say goodbye to Loren she said, “Those were the good ol’ days!”  As I watched her paddle out to say goodbye to the consummate husband, father and friend, I thought of Don Henley’s song, “The end of the Innocence” and rephrased it to Loren:

Now we’ve come so far, so fast
Who knew how long this was to last,
But somewhere back there in the dust
That Lone Jack time’s in each of us
I just need to remember this,
So Susie give him one last kiss
And let me take a long last look
Before we say goodbye

Loren and Paul

Loren and Paul

Stay Strong Susie, Graham, Hannah and Britta.  We love you. Our hearts ache with you.  The Copeskeys

    Hi Jackie,
    It was definitely a difficult but magical afternoon shared with an army of friends and well wishers for Loren and his family. Longtime friends Scott Tinley and Ed Machado were there as well.
    Thanks for your response and support.
