Richard and Brent, Just wanted to express my condolences to you and your family. Your dad was a great guy. I enjoyed being in his ward for years. Both mom and dad made everybody feel special and they were special. I lost my mother in Oct. and my dad 7 years ago and it's never easy to lose a parent, but thank goodness for the Plan of Salvation and our faith and knowledge that they are in a better place now with no pain or sadness. You are in my thoughts and prayers! Mike Wimmer
