Dave, we are so sorry for your loss we know how much you thought of your Dad. He seemed to have such a good time going out with you to Lunch, Shopping (especially Costco) and visiting with people. We remember when you brought your Dad to the Legion to visit with an old friend that had retried from Honeywell he was laughing and having such a great time. You will always have those wonderful memories. Our thoughts and prayers are with you.

My Dad was good friends with Jim, Tom's brother, and he considered Tom his friend also. I met Tom at my Dad's (Sherman Seeker) ceremony where they named a softball field in his memory in Bloomington. What a great guy Tom was that day. Jim, sorry for the loss of your brother. Last time I saw you, was with my Dad out in Vegas.
Great time was had by all.
Your have my heartfelt sympathy.
