Gary & Greg,
I was so sorry to hear about your Dad. I have so many fond memories of him. Not only at church but on the softball field as well. He was a special man and I appreciated his guidance and wisdom during those teenage years. Praying for God's comfort for the entire family.

Oh, Greg and Gary! I had no idea. I'm SO sorry to learn about the death of your Daddy! He was such a fine person. I think I'll always remember his smile and laugh. I pray that y'all will sense the presence of God in a special way during this time of grief. Blessings!
