Recollections & Sympathy For the Family
Post Comment
To all of you, Dawn, Kim, Diane ,Jackie and Joey,

Your father was the best and tears come to my eyes just thinking about him and his way. I think about all the times as a young child hanging around the back yard, playing hide and go seek, allies and Pokemon and II considered your Dad just like a Dad, he was the best! You guys are lucky to have had him at his ripe old age. My Dad always talked about Ashely and the ride on the trail, picking ferns and the jump out of the truck when the breaks went out... He was the best and am sure , he is looking down at all of you and nodding his head in approval! Joey, you remind m of your Dad ! Love ya all and. I am so sorry I missed the funeral. I

Love Ruthie.
