Jamie and Matthew I did not know your dad but I know what it is like to lose a parent. May God be with you both as you go through this very numbing and trying time ahead as it is hard to deal with that loss.

My heart aches for you with the loss of your dad. He was a wonderful dad. I was married to him for 11 years. He remained a friend after the divorce. He was always there for our children. Always. He loved going to the zoo, fishing, hunting and walking in the parks like oak openings. He will be missed.
