We are so sorry for the loss of your dad, Debbie and Denise and your husband, Kathy. He was a great man and always saw the good in people. I will never forget the times we shared when I was in college and got to spend Thanksgivings with you all. He has had a tremendous influence in my life and I am certain his legacy will live on through others. Our recent talk demonstrated that his faith was not going to waiver. Bless you and may God comfort you. Love you so much.
