Mason, I just heard of your Dad's passing. I am so sorry for your loss. You were such a good son to him and I know how much love there was between you. God bless you and comfort you. Tim enjoyed talking to Carl when ever they were both outside. We are home most all of the time, I am still pretty immobile from my knee surgery. You are always welcome to drop by.
