    Pauline and family, I was with Roberta and Gregg when she received the call of her Dad's passing. She had been keeping me up to date on his condition, but was so sorry he was gone so quick. I always enjoyed talking to him when you were home for visits. He was so kind. You all have my deepest sympathy for your loss. I know you will all miss him greatly. Take care.
