  • John and Debbie,

    Sorry to hear of the passing of your father, but there is a measure of happiness in knowing he and your mom are together once again. I have many good memories of your parents and the great friends they were to my parents. I especially remember how excited I was whenever I saw your father and his red boat headed home on 22nd St. after one of his summer fishing trips on the lake. We would run over to see how well he did. He was always proud to show us his catch and we were amazed at the size of some of the walleye he caught. I also remember him coming over to plow snow out of our driveway with his blue Chevy pickup. He was a good man and always nice to us kids. I’m sure your mom and my dad were there to welcome him into his heavenly home.

    Take Care,

    Dan
