-- None --

I remember your father with great fondness as he was at the IOOf home with my Mom and Dad. I took a liking to your Dad from the get go as he was always so full of life and kindness. I always looked forward to his smiling face when I visited my parents. After my father passed away he always took time to tell me how much he was with me. I will always remember him with Jean at the home and how they were always together. Your father was such a kind man and always a sharp dresser. When he left the home I missed his presence as his smiling face was one I looked forward to. Please know that I as well as my family thought so highly of him and missed him so much when he left. I do hope time and good memories help you though this. Your Dad is one that I will never forget.
