    John it was a great pleasure to know your dad!!!! I really appreciated getting to have him around and talk and laugh with him. He lightened up the house when we all had him here for dinner and to hang around. He will be missed. I will be praying for you and Joyce and my grandkids!!! I love you all very much.
