My sympathies to all of you. Many years ago I lived 2 houses down
from you, the one with yellow & maroon siding. Despite our age
differences we used to play together and you enjoyed Dad hitching
up all of the sleds behind his tractor to take us for rides in the
winter! We have good memories and I'm sure you have good
memories of your dad.  Keep them in a special place in your heart.
