Dear Steve,
Our deepest condolences to you, Shirley & the rest of your loved ones upon the loss of your dad. We did not have the pleasure of knowing your father while we lived in the Ashland area. Upon reading about him, we can tell how fine a person he was. Getting to know you for the past year here in Versailles confirms his good nature lives on in you. May you & yours find consolation in memories of a life well lived.
