Susan, Debbie, and Doug, You are in our prayers, it is really tough to lose a parent. Comfort comes from knowing your dad is with our Lord and visiting with your mom, can you imagine the reunion the two of them are having. You will always miss him, but the pain will heal in time.You will always have the wonderful memories, share them with your children and grandchildren. Larry and Melva Clark neighbors in Watauga
