Dear Pam and Rick, I was so sorry to hear about your father. He was such a wonderful man and when I think of him I see his big smile. My mother was telling me her fond memories of his quick wit and great sense of humor. She sends her love to you both as well. We will keep you all in our prayers. Amy
