Dana, Alan and family, I was saddened to learn of your Dad's passing. He and your Mom were the best neighbors, especially during those years when I was single parenting Danny & David. I remember lots of time spent on your front porch, and Dexter was so patient with the antics of the boys. He (and your Mom) will be missed. Please accept my sincerest condolences.
