    Angie, I only had the privilege of spending time with your parents on a few occasions but your dad was so kind, so friendly, so fun (!), and it was so very clear that he and your mom had a very close and loving relationship. They were not just spouses but true best friends. That in itself is AMAZING after 60-plus years of marriage! Our prayers continue for you and your mom and all of your family. Hold tight to your sweet memories of him, knowing you were blessed to have him for a father.
    Love, Melinda
