F. A. was a man who I knew as a true gentleman, who loved and accepted all. Anyone who came for a visit, dinner or holiday celebration always felt welcome and loved. Through his love and genuine care for others, he raised children and grandchildren who continued his legacy of love and acceptance. Thank you, F. A., for your son, Gary, and accepting me into your family. I feel as though I've been a part of your family for many, many years. I will miss your quick wit, cute smile, funny stories of working with your cows, and the Russian youth shots. But, most all I will miss seeing the absolute love between you and Virginia, your children, and all of your family. You are and will be greatly missed.
Love always xoxo
