Thank you to everyone that has reached out to my family this past week. My Dad was a truly magnificent man and kept himself surrounded by such great people. I'm really glad to see all of these testimonies from all of his friends. He loved each and everyone of you and he was so proud of all you. Dad will watch over all of us in heaven from now on. Once again, thank you for the kind words and support.
