Tribute to Dad

I don't normally post alot about my personal life, but my father died last night at the age of 93.  A blessing that it was a quiet, peaceful passing which certainly was an answer to prayer, just happened sooner than expected.

He was a loving and supportive father of 4, grandfather of 15 and great-grandfather of 27 - devoted to his family.  We all have great memories and Pappap stories to carry us through, but he will be sorely missed.

Love you Dad!
