My deepest condolences to all the family.
Cathy, I was so sorry to hear of your loss. My entire childhood is filled with so many wonderful memories of your dad. I fondly remember spending hours with him at his train set. However, I could never touch anything:) I can still hear his voice calling for Buttons, your dog. He'd be so excited and in his booming voice, call "Butts, butts, butts" across the house and he'd come running and jump on your dad's lap and lick his face. What a wonderful soul. Dawn (and Ann)
