Dear David and Marilee, I was so sorry to hear about your dad. He always had an easy smile and kind heart! I'm sorry that I couldn't make it to the funeral on Friday but am glad that Stacey, Donnie and Tim were able to attend. My heart goes out to you during these hard times. Know that you are in my prayers. Love, Karol
