From the short times I’d come over with Elizabeth, he always impacted my life. He carried such gentleness and love and always knew how to acknowledge someone with value and love, whether he knew them or not. All these years later I still remember him deeply.

Jewel— I love this picture of your dad— it’s the way I remember him— always a big smile on his face !! He and I always managed to communicate— either at school or in the insurance office . His note pad was always in his pocket and we were ready to trade messages as many times as it took to help each other understand. He and your mother raised a smart, beautiful daughter and I’m sending my love and prayers and hugs to you today.

Jewell, I always remember your dad working at the fieldhouse. Although I couldn't communicate with him very well, he always had a smile for me. I will never forget that smile! Sorry for your loss.
