Andrew, what a pleasure to meet your father. Such a sweet and pleasant man. He always seemed to be at such peace. He always had a slight smile like he was off on an adventure with your mom no matter what the conversation was or where we were....in fact I'm sure that's exactly where he was - and I believe he is yet again with his childhood sweetheart and onto happy and new adventures once again! Blessings and peace over you my friend. - Melinda
