Mrs. Helmick and Patti, I am so sorry for your loss, but grateful that he didn't suffer long. I know it is a huge loss and pray that God will hold you close during this time of grief.
I am remembering all the teasing between my dad, Paul, and Van. The time he sent mom the song "Short people have no reason to live." She didn't take it well, but we all thought it was hugely funny coming from another "short" person. Dad had a lot of fun plotting his practical jokes, but I always thought Van got the last word. Thank you for the memories of my own father.
