Obituary and Such.

Dads obituary was in today's paper. Mom and I were so overwhelmed with writing it that we forgot to send a picture in. I think this one would have been fitting. Several people have been confused about what a "visitation"'s a viewing, but without the body. Also, dads service at the Whitebriar begins promptly AT 9am on Tuesday. Hope to see you there.

Dads obit read:
