To all of the family I am so sorry for your loss. Bonnie my dear friend am so blessed that we became friends some 50 yrs ago and got to know your Dad and Mom. Your Dad was always a joker and enjoyed talking to him and see him when he would bring your mom in to the health care center in Versailles to get her hair done and after she had passed I would see him visiting people when my mom was in there he always stop to see how she was doing. May your memories bring you all blessings though this time.
