Dad was kind, big hearted, always quick to smile, and he never complained. Dad was the epitome of a life well lived and so many people loved him. He never met a stranger.

Mom & Dad - we miss and love you so much. We're so happy you're back together... a beer & cigar for Dad and dancing to a country song for Mom.
