Robin and Rhonda, I am so sorry to hear of your Dad passing. I have so many fond memories of him, and was always so impressed with his knowledge of the things he did or figured out! I also greatly appreciated the time he took, to visit my Mom and even take along out to eat at times, since my Dad passed. You’re in my thoughts.....
