Lhea, Blaine and Murray
I am so sorry for your loss. Your dad will always hold a special place in my heart. He was a man of many talents. But the one I loved the best was how he always managed to tease with a twinkle in his eye and a laugh as he gave his famous whisker rub. I left the farm many a time with rosy red cheeks. I had the good fortune of visiting with him a few times while I was home this past August. And, of course, he told me how much I liked the whisker rubs..I think he did too. It was his way of showing his love for many of us. May your memories keep him near and dear in your heart.
Love Cheryl ❤️❤️❤️
