    Fran, Paula & families: Very sorry about your Dad’s passing. I have many fond memories of him (I remember most his HUGE smile & caring, laid-back nature) and I know you miss him. My thoughts and prayers are with you during this difficult time of sorrow. I’m glad we stay in touch at the family gatherings. Love Brenda (O’May) Crye
