It is so hard to say goodbye to all these wonderful people, who helped make our childhood so great. Your father was always full of smiles, and was always so sweet to me. May God help all of you through this time. Please holler if I can be of any help! LOADS of love to ALL! Patti, Dave, and family
So sorry Sheila, it isn’t easy when our parents go, I know my mom died back in September. My condolences to you and your family.
Debbie, so sorry for your loss. I hope you can take comfort in all the wonderful memories you have of your father. Praying for you and your family.
I remember that I always liked your father, I remember tooling around in that go kart in your backyard. He was a lot of fun. I am very sorry for your loss.
I am so sorry, Debbie. It is never easy to lose someone, especially a parent. Love you.
