truly sorry to hear of the passing of your father, to have had a father for the ripe age of 92 is a blessing inside of itself. It's still hard to come to grips with life no mater what the age is.
I will keep the prayers coming for you and your family in this time of grief.
Every time I pass thru Benton I think about you.
