Kathy, Mike and Patricia & family,
I have great memories of your Dad & my Dad taking Mike , Ronnie & I fishing. We had many great times and I always enjoyed being around your Dad. I also remember all the days around the Little League ball fields. Especially the time he was dragging the practice field with a steel roller and Ronnie hit a ball through his car window. He was a great friend to our family and especially my Dad. Mom and Dad really appreciated the times, late in their life, when your Dad came by the house to visit. Just remember all the good times, and there were many, to get you through the tough times. Your Dad was a wonderful man and good example for all us. Thinking about you at this difficult time and praying for your comfort.
