Maureen and Katie, I (Barb) had the privilege of teaching music at S. Mary’s School in Anderson with your mom. She quickly made me feel welcome. She and your dad became special friends. Along with first grade teacher Carol Elser, art teacher Sherry Ballinger and their spouses, your parents and we enjoyed many pitch-in dinners together. We all shared stories of our families, bragging on our kids, our grandkids and our gardens.

In conversations with your dad, I know how very much he treasured his time with all of you. Your nearness and all the meals you shared made him so very happy. He was such a good man. I pray that your sorrow will be softened by your memories of such a special dad.
