Hi my name is lee Bourdess
A 1988 graduate of your dads Parma carpentry class.
Your dad was a great teacher so I can only imagine the great things you all learned from him at home.
Very funny guy who told you how it was.
I’m sure he is getting a room in heaven ready for his family ,
Like our lord Jesus says “ our fathers house has many rooms, I must go and prepare one for you”
God bless all of your family.
