to Sherrie and Gil, so sorry for your loss. I know he is in a better place. You will have peace in the process of mourning him. He was a handsome man and raised a good family. He had a good turn on earth.

Dave I am sorry to hear of the passing of your father. I have such fond memories of your family, parents and your home on Tyler. I remember water skiing with your parents at Pine View in that big tuna of a boat! I recall your dad having a CB radio that was fun to use. We always got a kick out of your dad being in his pajamas at 6 o'clock at night. Having gone through the loss of my father, I know how you are feeling. It is a blessing not to see them suffer but we will always long for them. I sincerly hope and pray you and your family will find comfort. Your friend, Joe Markland
