I am so sorry about your Dad, he was always ready to stop and chat, and we spent lots of time in Food Lion, just catching up on the week. I always loved to hear him laugh, as I clowned around with him. I regret it has been so long since I saw him. Please know we loved him, and our prayers are with you all.
