Penney, I was so sorry to hear about the passing of your Dad. I know you had him a long time but it is still hard to lose a loved one. He always had such a sweet spirit about him and when greeted, he always had that special smile. I know he is in Heaven and I hope at some time Nathan will be able to greet "Paw Paw"(as he liked to call him)and say "welcome Home". My prayers are with you, John and family during this time. In Christian love, Pauline
