Billy & Linda, Mike & Ruth, Brad & Danielle and Family; Our thoughts and prayers are with all of you at this time. Your dad was a special person and we so appreciated the love he showed my parents Elmer and Mary. They so enjoyed it when he brought your mom and they went to dinner and there before my dad passed he''d come and take them out as well. Always brought them such cheer knowing they were cared for. He loved his family and it showed.

May God bring you comfort and peace.
Jack, Linda, Cindy and Andrew and Aunt Mary sends her love and says she could be there with you.
