Pam,
You have been on my mind now for days. I went online to see if you we're still in Maryville and found that your dad had just passed! My deepest condolences to you and your family. I know it was important for you to be near your dad and hope you have comfort in the fact that you were near. I do miss you!
Always......Deb Peel
