I was sadden to hear of the loss of your father. I remember fondly the years we worked together at the Church. He would come and sit in my office and talk or he would come and tell me that he had made breakfast and to come and eat. I came to respect him and know him as a person and not just a fellow church member. I know how much he loved his wife and family. They were both wonderful people and I feel blessed to have known them. I will never forget them. You all were blessed with two wonderful parents. My condolences to all.
