    You are in my thoughts and prayers. He was my second dad & I loved him. He was so much fun, always smiling (around me anyway). A few months ago we had a visit; he remembered our truck ride with tus kids in the bed of the truck on chairs. The speedster that he was, he went flying over a bump in the road. When I came down, the chair broke!! Ruth, Susan and family, may you be comforted at this time. I’m sure he’s smiling now!!
