Deepest sympathy from Pat and Lou Ann and family to you Annette, and your family on the passing of your dad. We are confident that you all were a joy and comfort to your dad all of your lives, but especially in these last weeks and month. May the Lord give you His peace as you struggle with the grief, and may memories bring not only tears but also laughter as both sad ones and happy ones dwell in your thoughts. With love and prayers, Lou Ann and Pat
