    Dan & Family: I was home this weekend and saw the obituary for your father, husband and grandpa! … I’m sorry for your loss! You all will be in my prayers for many days to come! Please know that many will pray for you and console you during this very difficult time. That’s why we should all cherish growing up in small towns like Pickard, Forest, Michigantown and Kirklin! We all care about each other even when we haven’t seen each other for many many years. … God Bless you all!
