Unfortunately you do not realize just how many people someone touches until they are gone.It was truly amazing to see the impact of this loss.Even the man at the store he played his daily numbers at came out to pay his respects.Thank you to all he attended the calling hours. As much as we will miss him he will miss you all as well.Dad you were a special man and will never be forgotten.
