  3. Connie, I'm so sorry that you and your family are hurting right now. So many of my childhood memories include your Dad. I do and will always cherish those memories and will always be thankful that I have them. Your Dad was one of a kind and when I think of him it will bring a smile to my face and a chuckle in my heart. I'll never forget the road trip I was fortunate to take with you, your Mom, Dad and Shawn when we went to visit Lynn and Debbie and the new lil Jason! That was at a time in my life when I needed to get away and your Dad was there for me, kind of like a second father to me. I will ALWAYS appreciate and love him for that. I know that y'all will all be there for one another through this difficult time and your family will be the stronger for it. I love y'all. Peg
