Your dad was a wonderful man, one who I will never forget. We will have so many memories of him to share with Meghan when we are trying to get up and out of our rocking chairs, Mindi! And, when he meets us as we finally reach the next level in our existence, he can really give us heck as he rejoices with us! ... Glory days!

My thoughts and prayers are with you during this time. I lost my father during this Holiday 39 years ago. It was hard to get through our sorrow even though we knew he was in Heaven. Cherish the memories you have of him! He has his spirit there with you in your heart! God bless!
