I just wanted to say I'll be thinking of you all the next few days and days to come. I know Marcie you will have some peace knowing he is reunited with your mom. I have been so proud of the way you and Brent stepped to give your dad a safe enjoyable life the last year in your home, unselfishly putting your life on hold. I loved spending time with him and the stories he would tell. He will truly be missed and never forgotten. Love you and all your sweet family dearly and so blessed for our friendship.
