You were such a handsome and loving dad. Growing up Dana and I would love to hear stories about you and Bettye in the younger years. I always heard how much you loved Harris County growing up and when I moved there as an adult I truly understood your passion. I know you are pleased to be healed ....walking with your family again in your new land❤️
Much love,
Melissa
