To Rob & Frank and your families: I didn't know your Dad except through you but can tell by the care you took of him especially toward the end that bond was very close. As hard as it is to have your Dad cross over, I'm sure it was even harder to watch him suffer. That phase of life is gone and a new one began when he joined the Lord. Memories you shared together will be forever with you and your friends are here to comfort you. Feel free to share those memories and your feelings with us. Remember, you don't need a phone to still be able to talk to him and to Him and the outdoors is a great place to do that. God bless!
