I am so sorry about the loss of Pa. What a special man he was. He loved all of you kids so dearly. I will always remember his kind gentle soul. I loved that he would come to my basketball games, that meant so much to me. You will be missed Pa. Have fun up there and keep an eye on all of us! xoxo Kelley
