Wiley Grossman MWC died, this morning 18-Dec-2008, of a long and painful cancer. He adopted us 14 years ago. He was a curmudgeon with a quick temper but Wiley was always fair. He accepted the world as it was and never complained. Once Wiley trusted somebody, it was a full, 100% trust. He never questioned or argued. Some people eat to live, he lived to eat.
He always wanted to be a great explorer, he talked about it at least a couple of times every week. He did some exploration, but only during nice weather. Once he ventured in the "Great White North" in winter, I had to rescue him.
