Although I never knew this man, After reading the families sentiments about their Dad, I sensed I had known him for a long time. It seems common for people born in that era to appreciate the life they were born into in spite of being somewhat poor. It is that quality and experience that made our dearly departed parents so rich and meaningful. To the family I offer my sincere condolences and I thank you for sharing the heartfelt stories. Your Dad was a man of faith that made a difference, and will continue too for a long time.
He has now done that for me and I owe him my gratitude.
