Your family is in our thoughts and prayers.
A wonderful man and great citizen!!! I have such fond memories of Day's restaurant and the Skating Rink... God Bless!!!
Thanks for all the kind words about our father. Although he could not remember the times we spent with him during his last year, we tried to take Thanks so much for your kind words. During the last year, we spent most of our time with him taking him back home for short visits and making trips to The Cracker Barrel with him. He enjoyed those trips a lot, but the real joy was for us as he always kept us entertained with his quick wit and humor. But in the end, he was weary and could not stay here with us. It is hard to believe he is gone and we will have to find our peace in knowing he left for an eternal home with joys far greater than was possible here.
I am so sorry to hear of Mr. Day's passing. I have a lot of fond memories to hold on too. My mother worked at Days Restaurant when i was a small child i remember playing there.I never missed a day the skating rink was open growing up. Mr. Day offered the children of Morgantown entertainment that they do not have now.I appreciate that alot.As an adult i got the pleasure of caring for Mr. Day at Morgantown Care and Rehab i really enjoyed the talks we had about his life history.I also enjoyed moments of laughter with him reminiscing about my childhood days at the skating rink and dance! My prayers go out to his family and may God bless you!!
