Kevin and Kendra, prayers with you and all your family. I remember you Dad at Safeway! My Mom always shopped there because she thought so much of your Dad. He was always so very nice to me any time I was with Mom. I know he will be missed by all but it is awesome he was able to enjoy family for so many years. Here's hoping all those great memories will quickly fill the hole left by his death. God bless and keep you all.
