Dad I will always remember our times together whether it was taking you to your appointments or taking you shopping but always had to stop a Burger King to get you sausage biscuit and a senior coffee and visiting with your friends there. I enjoyed our trips to Morley to take you to the graves so you could put your flowers on the graves. Our time together will be a precious memory to me love you dad. R.I.P. love your dad. Sandy
