So sorry to hear if your Dad’s passing. He was a great friend to our Dad and it was always fun to hear their stories and views of how to fix the world during their visits. The times our families shared in New Hampshire will never be forgotten. Forgive me for not attending the services but we now live in Fort Myers, Fl. My sympathies to your family.
