My deepest sympathy to you and your family for the loss of your father. What a wonderful picture you all have posted. I see he passed down to you the love for skiing. My best, Joan

I'm very sorry to hear this news.
It was a great neighborhood and I have many memories of your dad playing touch football & tennis with all of us.
Praying for His hand of comfort at this time and always.

Uncle Urban got so much joy from skiing! He often regaled us with stories from the ski patrol, while sharing a bologna sandwich with ketchup, and a Sanka, at the kitchen table with my Mom and Grandma Florence. For many years when the season ended, he'd lovingly gather up the lost and found jackets, hats and gloves and pass them on to my children. His acts of kindness helped us greatly, plus my kids then had the nicest stuff! Thank you, Uncle Urban.
