I served a table of 8 or so in the summer, and they ended up being family. I overheard their conversation and they mentioned my parents' hometown, so I jumped in. It turns out that one of the men was my dad's cousin, so we were second cousins. That was the only time I met him, but I heard that he was pleased to meet family. I later learned he was battling cancer. He passed in September. I thought I would share this video that one of his co-workers created, check it out if you're interested, there's some great shots of wildlife towards the end.
Rest in Peace, Miles.
