Dear Bill and Barb and family, I am so sorry to learn of your father's passing. I would have loved to have met him to trade stories about the good ol' days and chat with him about the things he enjoyed doing in his free time. He raised a loving family and I know he will be dearly missed. My prayers and thoughts are with you today and always. - Grapka
