Thinking of your family today. Lots of happy memories with your family and ours. I'm unable to attend, Larry is out of state and our mother's health makes attending funerals difficult. Betty Martin and her son's Larry and Richard.

Tony, I know this a huge loss, I will be praying that this season of sadness will be a short season, but the memories of your father will last forever. My dad passed away 36 years ago next month and I still think about him nearly every day. Your mother will also be in my prayers. Your family means a lot to me
