  1. Lisa, Billy, Mike, and David—Your Dad was a Very Wonderful, kind Person..When ever I had seen him he would always take time to speak to me….he was a Good man, and I had a Lot of respect for him, knowing some of the Problems your Dad had in the Past, as you know my Wife passed a Couple years ago…Tracy met your Dad a few times at your home Lisa/Rich, I remember her saying , what a nice man he was…and I would agree ” Brownie ” is a nice man ! So now maybe they will see each other again, and talk about the past….I know he will be in good hands…don’t none of you worry about Him…He is now in the Arm’s of the Angels……Stay strong, and always remember those little things about your Dad……Bob
