  4. Jeff, Kevin, Kristen, Jennifer, and Steve - I have known your dad for most of my life, but never really got to know him. Fortunately, within the last year I have had the opportunity to chat with him on a couple of occasions and thoroughly enjoyed our conversations. You could tell how much he loved and appreciated his family and friends, and the experiences that he had with both. Be thankful for the time that you did have with him, and hold on to those memories until you see him again.

    I am sorry that I will not be able to make the visitation, but please accept my sincere sympathy for your loss. T will be greatly missed.
