    Sending love and light to surround you and your family. I met your dad a few times when I would visit on trips home from Colorado. I would see him at my sister Sandra's and husband Mike's house. He always made me laugh with his jokes and lively stories. He was always so sweet.

    Jody and I are sad for the loss of your beloved “Daddy”. Whenever you spoke of him at work, I could hear the soft sweet way you said his name and could tell how much you loved him. Our thoughts are with you and your family.
