Ann and Beth, I just happened to see your dad's obituary by looking at a Chandler-Jackson obit Greg Hawthorne had posted on Facebook. Your dad was a special person, and someone I always had fun with. I recall those wonderful days with Bob Winn and our fishing trips with your dad and some of Due West other "finests". So sorry for your loss, and wishing you both the very best wishes as you carry on without a very special man in your lives.
