John, Sylvia, Diane. I am deeply sorry for your loss. I am glad I got to see your father this past summer. He was a neat guy. I am sure there is going to be a huge hole in your hearts as you get used to his absence. I pray that it will be filled with many happy memories and rest assured that he is with your Mom in the heavens. God bless.
Rich and Sandy
