Prayers to your family on the loss of your father, AL. He was such a good man and very nice. I lived in the neighborhood “Hardyville” and both your parents were so nice. My mom (Doris) also worked with him at Riverside for many years and they all enjoyed that time. I also loved to hear him sing at church!!
