    Dad – you were my favorite father-in-law. Oh that’s right you were my only one, but you knew how much I loved you. Even if you didn’t feed me dinner on Friday nights 😁when I lived with you while your son was in Vietnam. We had a special bond. RIP with God and the rest of your heavenly family.

  • Edward sincere sympathy on the passing of your father.
