Chris, Mike and families, I was so sorry to hear about your dad, he was such a interesting person, I loved to hear the story about how he met your mom, and about your trips out to Arnegard for Christmas, he was full of history and we had allot of good visits and laughs with him. His memory was great. I wish we could be there on Saturday, but it isn’t going to work out for us..but we are sending our love, sympathy and prayers to all of you.
