Cindy, so sorry to hear of your Dads passing. He was a great guy and remember when we were younger and us guys would come to your home and your Dad would make sure there was no hanky panky. It was fun back then. Please remember all the great times you had with your Dad. You and your Mom and family are in my prayers, my sincere sympathy to all.
