I'm so sorry to hear about your Dad. I always thought a lot of him, every time I would see him, he would make me laugh or just put a smile on my face. He had a great sense of humor. I know you will all see him again one day. He's at peace and just know that he's at home now. If there's anything that anyone of you need, please don't hesitate to call. Our thoughts and prayers are with all of you. Love, Vicki & DJ.
