I would like to convey my deepest sympathy to all of you. I can remember your dad hauling us aroung in the back of his old truck. We were young and everything was fun then. Staying up on Saturday night watching the horror flicks and your Dad making us get up to go to church. I will never forget your Mom or Dad.
Love to you all
