I am so sorry for your loss. I did not know he had been sick but then I don't hear much about family these days. I send mine and Uncle Kenneth's thoughts to your family. I hope to make on of the services even if it will be at the cemetery in DVB. May God hold and bless you all.

Glynn some of my fondest memories of your Dad was his way of kidding and his wonderful laugh. I know he thought you and your sister were very special and he and your Mom were a handsome couple. My thoughts and prayers are with you all. Judith Stokes
