    So very sad for the passing of such a wonderful man who influenced so many others. I was honored to know him and appreciate his warm sense of humor, kindness and love for his family and friends. I thank him for my best friend Sara who loved and took such good care of him. A model of graceful aging, with so many of all generations who loved and respected him, he will be missed but live on in our hearts. I am thankful he has reunited with Dorothy who he missed so much. I’m sure there must be all you can eat Costco hot dogs and ice cream in heaven! Much love!

    Lynne, Carol, and Sara,
    I was so sorry to hear about your father’s passing. He was such a big part of my life growing up and I will always remember his sense of humor and kindness. While heaven is welcoming a new resident, I pray you will all find God’s peace and comfort.
