Jan and family, I was out of State for a couple of weeks and unfortunately missed your father’s obituary and service. He was a wonderful man and I loved him and he me. Even during the past year we had long telephone conversations and he was delightful to speak with and bright. He will be missed dearly and you should be glad and proud to have called him “dad.” Take care, all of you. Adrianna
