Sissy and Cheryl, so sorry for your loss of a husband and dad. It's our loss as well being that he was my uncle. I wasn't able to spend much time getting to know him because the distance of being so far away. I do remember his beautiful smile and a loving way he had toward others. He will be dearly missed. Our love and prayers will be with you and the rest of the family.
