I was very privileged to have a wonderful father in law. I would not trade him for anyone else. I will miss watching him have that special bond with my children. My children adored him as well as I. I know that he is back in the arms of Connie and that is very comforting.

I will always see my Father's beautiful smile every time I think of him. He would always giggle whenever I say "How are you doing fat man." Dad will be so missed, but there is so much comfort in knowing he is now with my Mom where he belongs.
Love you Dad,
Annie
