    Becky so sorry to hear of the loss of your dad. He was a wonderful man of God. He and your mom loved you dearly! I’ll always remember the day I came over your house to see you had a pet rat. I knew they cherished you then! Prayers for comfort and peace especially knowing he is with our Heavenly Father! God bless! Edina Hess

    Becky, What I remember most in the short time that I spent with your Dad was how much he loved and missed his childhood sweetheart. To be so loved is the greatest gift a soul can receive and give. May God bless and keep you all in the palm of his hand.
