Kathy, you were blessed with a wonderful, hardworking father. I am blessed to have known him for 50 years. He and your mother were always kind to me. I wish you, Dave, Josh and Heather only good memories. I miss the times a few years ago when I would see him at the JayC store with only Little Debbies in his cart (which he told me the doctor didn’t want him to eat.) I hope he can find Little Debbies in heaven and have as many as he wants.
