    You were the most amazing man. You stayed around when you didn’t have to when you and mom divorced. You stayed by my side. I love you dad and I will forever miss you.

    Oh my dear friend…… If I’m doing my math correctly, you and Carol have been a part of my life for half of my life, and I wouldn’t trade a minute of it. I am blessed and honored by the friendship you’ve both given me over these many years. I have so many wonderful memories of times we spent, and how graciously the two of you let me tag along as the 3rd wheel on many occasions. You will be missed. Love you both!!!!!!!

    So sorry to hear that Don passed away-we wanted to come out for the service and bring you sourdough bread but Ed/Rich seemed to discouraged it?
