We would like to thank you all for coming to our dad’s celebration of life service. As most of you know by now dad just made his 84th birthday a couple of weeks before his passing. Our dad lived about 77 years of his 84 within about 5 miles of our family home that he and mom built over 50 years ago. He raised 5 sons, 4 of which are here with us today: Eric, Norman, Dwayne and myself. It is my belief Dad never met anyone he did not like. He and mom spent many happy decades together till mom was called home 9 years ago. For a year my brothers and I worried over dad. He was, for the most part, a shut-in after the love of his life left him. About 8 years ago dad came out of his shell and started to have the company of a caregiver and companion with Lucy. Dad is going to be missed by one and all. We love you pop. Tell mom we all say hi.
