Two years ago we were in Pittsburgh for a family picnic being held in Ohio. On the way to the picnic we stopped and visited your Dad at his house in Weirton. My Mom was also with us. Your Dad was so happy to see us. He showed us all around his house and of course all the family pictures. We talked about the good ol’ days and laughed quite a bit with him. We are so happy we made that visit with your Dad. He was a special person. Again, accept our deepest sympathies, I am sure he is blessing you and your family from heaven above.
