    Dad, you will be dearly missed. You were a man of integrity . I will miss your never ending jokes, even if you did tell the same ones more than once. You did a wonderful job of taking care of mom the last four years. The mountain does not seem the same without you there. But I know you are all around because I can see what your 25 years up there have done. Your loss has left a big hole in is all, but I know you would want us to carry on and live well. You were admired by many, even if you thought you weren’t. I love you dad!
