Dad, thank you for being such a wonderful father and teacher about life. As a child it was always fascinating watching you building things and inventing an array of helpful items. Your warmth, and your great sense of humor will be missed. Everyone who ever met you will never forget you. And thank you for helping me learn every tool in the toolbox and how to use it. It has really come in handy over my own adult life time. You will be missed so much. Your loving daughter, Terry
