Tracy J and Jannie -
I am so sorry to hear about your dad. I will share this sad news with the rest of my family. Your dad was the greatest! Remember him grilling on the weekends while your mom was scooting around in her corvair! I also remember us hitting the freezer in your basement regularly for ice cream treats! And chasing Donald Duck around the yard when we were little. Hope this brings you a smile! Love to you, Julie Howe Hadsell (jrbm@comcast.net)
