We are so sorry for your loss. We knew your dad as a member of St. Augustine church and as a companion to Marilyn, our sister-in-law. We enjoyed visiting with him at family gatherings. A very dear sweet man. Unfortunately, we are out of state on vacation and unable to attend. Know that you are in our thoughts and prayers.
