Dear Dottie and Families, We send our deepest sympathy to all of you. Your dad lived a long life, surrounded by family that truly loved and cared for him. What better life could there be than that kind of life...loving and being loved. The children have no school, and because of the weather, I don't think I will be able to come, but know that having lost my dad, I know no one can replace a dad. Just having him for so many years in your life was a true blessing. Our condolences to all. Love, Frannie, Bo and family
