Although it has been a long time since I have seen your Dad, Teresa, I remember his humor with all of us "girls" years ago. It is a nice memory to have. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.

My sympathy goes to Teresa, Becky, Carolyn, and Pamela. I know that you will miss him. I like to remember how he would kid me that he & I slept in the same room. Teresa knows the story! My thoughts and prayers are with you.
