    My thoughts and prayers go out to you and your family in this difficult time. Your dad/Grandpa was a very wonderful man! When I would take Lyndsay’s kids (my grandkids) to the park to play when I was babysitting them he would offer us all homemade cookies and man were they good! He will be missed!
