    Annie and family – much love and sympathy to you today as you lay your father to rest. I imagine you all to be sharing great stories … bringing to mind all of the special things and ways you will miss about “dad” (and grandpa). Please know my heart has been filled with love and prayers for you since I learned of his passing and that my prayers will continue for you today and the days that lie ahead. God’s blessings – Cheryl
