To Mark, Richard and family,
Words cannot express how sad we are to hear About Dads passing. Aspen Road is grieving with you. We will miss his amazing smile and great sense of humor. He always stopped by to ask how Dave and I and Mom and Mark were, as well as checking in on what Jake and Alexandra were up to. He knew and truly cared about everyone. He and your mom would sit on their front porch and watch the flurry of activity on the street such as people gardening, hanging out or playing ball. After Marcia passed he continued their ritual of sitting on his rocking chair and watching the neighborhood activity from their porch and I honestly think he had every neighbor on those steps to hang out with him. That’s the type of personality he was. Our condolences go out to you all on dad‘s passing. He will truly be missed very much.
