I was so sorry to hear of your father’s passing. He held a special place in my heart and he will be missed. I am so glad that he had such good health most of his life and that he was able to live independently for so long. He is with his precious Viv, so I know that he is content.
Kathy and family,
so sorry to hear of your dads passing. Rest assured now he is with your mom and they are in a better place. My thoughts and prayers are with you at this time.
Amy and family, so sorry to hear about Homer. May God be with you during this difficult time.
Sorry to hear of your Father’s passing. He was a wonderful man! I remember all the times we would be waiting for you Kathy, and while doing so, would be sitting talking and visiting with him and your Mother. Those were the good ole’ days, weren’t they??
They are together now. You and your family will cherish so many great memories of them both.
Love and Prayers to you, Rita and Michael
