Terry, Jamie, Tim and Shawn -

I am so sorry to hear of the passing of your father.  It’s been many years since I’ve seen your dad.  The picture chosen for his memorial brought a smile to my face, looking exactly as I remember him.

Sending healing prayers and comforting hugs to all of you during this difficult time.
