I miss you already, Dad. When I was young, I thought you were the toughest, biggest, most determined man I knew. You always had the ansers, taught me things that other fathers wouldn't have taught daughter; changing oil, or a tire, and how to drive at age 12. I will always remember the good times and share them whenever I can with my children. I am grateful that your last days were with us and I know you know rest with God. I will always love and miss you. Love, Deb
Linda and family: May the comfort of God help you
during this difficult time.
