Red Eagle Mountain (See the eagle's head?) marks the ancient site of Teopantitla; the Aztec village which preceded Ajijic. I hiked there for the first time on Saturday the 17th of October...
...the day Joe Farber passed into the heavens... at home... in his bed... with Mom.
97 years sharp to the end. Amazing guy who enjoyed nature and his wide-ranging travels. Ten years as a very special and dear partner to mother Lilly, Joe become our second Dad for my sisters and I. A WW II Vet who trained as a bombardier and went on to be an ace mechanic on the big birds, and later succeed in business... his way... Retired a top producer at 52... and went to see the world in a camper.
What a privilege and honor to have shared the very beginning of his next chapter... up there, now.
See you at the top, Joe!
The very top.
Here's to ya, Joe Farber... from your namesake 'Jose' and a yellow rose in Ajijic. Thanks for that big chunk of obsidian!
Vaya con Dios Amigo.
Follow the Light... behind the light.
