Susan, So sorry to hear about your dad, he had a good life. Pray Christ will comfort you in this time of loss. hl
Larry and Susan, my heart goes out to you both. It is hard to lose a parent. I guess I had heard that your Mother died awhile ago,but I had forgotten. I am very sorry to see that your dear Father Earle died the other day. My prayers are with you. Did you ever find the Santa suit?
