Becky, I was so sorry to hear about the passing of your Daddy. He has always been such a nice man. I remember him coming to our house when I was a little girl. My Mom and Dad bought alot of items from Chew Furniture from him. I know what you are going through right now and believe me time helps, but the pain never goes away. You and your family are in my thoughts and prayers. If there is anything I can do just let me know. Pam
