Cheryl and Family, I am so sorry for your loss of a great father who will be deeply missed. He was a wonderful husband as we could see visiting Hilda every day at Parkway where we visit our Mom. I will miss his remarks and funny comments in the gang conversations out front. My thoughts and prayers are with you all, God Bless
