I am very sorry for your lost. I am your dads first cousin from Omaha Nebraska, all our families were very close growing up. Your dad was older so we were not real close like played together. We have stayed in contact a lot this past 10 years or so, and I stopped and seen him 4 years ago while in Jacksonville. Your dad had a good life and enjoyed talking about both of you.
Love Bill Carlson
