To Marlea, Bobby, and Gary...I send my most heartfelt condolences to you. Times like these, while so very sad, are also the times to share some of life's most wonderful moments and memories. I have many of those, in my heart, that include all of us together enjoying great times and our lifelong friendships. Your husband and father was a great man and I pray that you will place all of those wonderful years in that special place in your heart where you can find the joy and peace that will bring a smile to your faces when you think of him.
