What a fine husband and father we have lost. It was always such a pleasure of mine to have one of the family visit my office. When I would see one of the names on the schedule, I would look forward with anticipation of their visit and my joy to be allowed to treat them. The community has lost a fine man, but the community is better because of him. My he rest in Peace. God Bless his Soul.
