Dear Scott,

I have been praying for your Dad since I saw you last week, and so glad we had the opportunity to share about our dear parents. I know how much you are going to miss your Dad, but I am so happy for him that he is finally with his heavenly father. He was certainly a special man and someone who was a faithful friend to our family throughout the years. I have many fond memories of him and can picture him sitting in the pew at Central Christian Church with you, Gary and your sweet Mom. You might be interested to know that your Dad passed away on the date of my sister's birthday, Carolyn, who died at the age of 2 on February 10, 1964. February 22nd has always held a special place in the hearts of our family for many reasons and now we will also remember your Dad fondly on that day. So sorry I can't be there to celebrate your Dad's wonderful life with you and your family, but just know that I will be keeping you close in prayer!

Love & Blessings!
