Linda, Cindy, Genia
I was so sad to hear about your dad passing away. He was like a grandpa to me. Even though you lived in California he and your mom stayed close with our family. I remember he taught Susan how to walk on one of their visits. I take comfort knowing that he is with your mom, Paul and Dawnie and I know they are happy. Please know that I love you all and have you in my prayers. Linda June.
