Ken,
How lucky I am to have met your Dad that bright sunny afternoon.He always had a friendly greeting along with that magnetic smile. I love the stories he would tell about his travel and fishing expeditions, and of you playing ball. You have so many beautiful memories of him as he has of you. He and Mom are together once again.May they both rest in peace. God Bless.
Love, Ellie
