Shannon and Lori, I am sorry to hear about your Dad. He & I had some good days, lots of laughing, talking to the T.V. programs we watched, and talked about his childhood and his family. I am glad I had some time with him- he was fun, and at times, funny. Cherish his good memories . . Leslie Wunder (Home Instead )
