Dear Nancy, I am so sorry to hear you lost your dad. He sounds like he really accomplished a lot in his 86 years. I know you and your family will keep his memory alive with your love and great stories. May he always be by your side as you work through this journey called life.

I’m so saddened to hear this. So many memories of weekends spent at your house. My favorite one of your dad was wrestling matches on the living room floor between him and Donny. Mainly because that would never happen at my house. Love all of you. May God bring you peace and comfort at this time.
