Dear Wenger Family,
Very sorry to hear about the passing of your Dad. I remember seeing him everyday as a child when I walked up and down the driveway past your house. I also remember playing with Jamie at your house and he was always nice to me. Your Dad was always smiling and so kind to everyone. I hope that your family has peace at this time. I am so glad that he lived a nice long life and that you had him all these years. Sending my prayers.
