I am so sorry to hear about your Dad. He was a very classy man who was so proud of his family. He had a wonderful sense of humor and always made me laugh at Griffin and Kellen's birthday parties. I feel very fortunate to have known him. My heart goes out to you, Mike, Griffin, Kellen and all of your family. You're in my thoughts and prayers.
With deepest sympathy,
