We are saddened to hear that your dad had passed away. He has been a friend since our high school days and it was always nice to meet him at church . . . in Country Kitchen, or wherever else we might meet him. We will keep all of his family in our thoughts and prayers. He was a good and honest man and someone that were proud to call "our friend".
