My condolences to the entire Hunt family. Patty, I am very sorry about your Dad's passing. He was always very kind to me and was engaging back then during those very important teenage years and I will never forget it. My prayers are with you and everyone in your family that I remember from those days in Saville. When things settle down I would like to get caught up sometime. I don't do Facebook or any other social media but my email is listed I believe. Take care. Tom Jackse
