Frankie and I are sad to hear of your father’s passing. He was a great husband, father, grandfather and father-in-law. I enjoyed many chats with him when he visited our mutual grandchildren, Stephen and Shealynn, when I cared for them while their parents worked. He had a good sense of humour and was a great story-teller. Our condolences to his family.
