  23. Margie, Suzie, Kathy, David & Karen, I was so sorry to hear of your Dad’s passing. By the time I did his funeral had already happened or I would have done all I could to have been there. Your Dad was a wonderful man who I had great respect for. Truly one of a kind, a very good kind. He loved his family dearly and taught you all a great deal about life. Remember those lessons and smile, especially at those times when you find yourselves passing those same lessons onto you children and grandchildren. Love and sincere condolences, Doug
