I was so sorry to hear of the loss of your father. I have known your family for over sixty years. First are our renters, and then neighbors south of town. I will truly miss seeing Calvin when I'm visiting at the home. We'll cherish our memories of your dad and will remember you and your families in our prayers. Calvin, rest in peace!
