Olivia and Kimberly, I am so sorry to hear about your dad. Your pictures brought back so many memories. I loved the camp pictures which was the last time our whole family was together. Roy and I really enjoyed our last visit with your Mom and Dad when they met Roy. I had nice phone call visits with your Dad after your Mom was gone. My prayers are with you.
Love Aunt Marsha
