My heart goes out to all of you. He will be missed terribly. Especially this winter. There won't be anyone to DEAL! the cards with. Will miss the cookie making at Christmas and all the sewing we do at that time of year. I'm regret that I won't be able to attend the service on Sunday but I'll be there in spirit.Love you all. Be Blessed.
