We're so sorry to hear about your Dad's passing. We have so many good memories of living across the street from you all for quite a few years. Your dad was a great neighbor and good to let you all and our kids play kickball in your side yard! It's sad that we lost touch over the years. You are all in our thoughts and prayers.
God's Blessings to you all,
Dick and Linda
