DAD was one of the sweetest people to me and EVER dear to my life and my heart. I Loved the two of my parents dearly but they was my parents and sisters in Texas, Dad is with my mama and daddy in heaven now. I send my love always
Karen am so sorry for your loss, he was a great guy, may God be with you and your family in this difficult time
Karen, I just saw this today. I am so sorry for your loss. The most precious memories outside of the kindness your family enveloped around me was Jackie’s assistance in getting me safely to work especially in the ice and snow. My heart goes out to you and the girls/family in your time of grief. I still love you and hold you in my heart.
