Janet and family,
Your dad was always one of my favorite people growing up. I have so many memories of weekends at your house . They would knock on the wall between their bedroom and yours to tell us to quiet down and the louder we would get, the louder they would knock. He was a good man with a hugh heart and a never ending smile! My mom just adored him as well. No matter how old our parents are when they pass or how old we are- it still leaves a hole in our heart. Hold on to all the wonderful memories and fun times you had! He loved to talk about his son in law the Marine! ❤️❤️❤️
