Michele, I met your Dad one time at your house. He was outside in the yard making himself busy. You always told me he would never stop doing things he liked to do until he grew too tired to carry on. He continued working and giving. I know he will be missed. You were a wonderful daughter to him over the years. May God Bless you and family with Peace and Comfort.
