Jen your Dad was a great person and a good friend. I can still remember he and my brother Victor coming through the woods with your Dad’s dog Brownie. They would come in the back door at our house and leave Brownie on the patio. The two of them would then sneak out the front door and that loyal old dog would sit on that patio and wait for your Dad to come back.
He came over a couple of months ago to fix a light fixture for me and he talked about your little dog, I have a littleShitzu, and how much he just loved Roxy, how Roxy would sleep between his legs.
Your Dad was a great person, a lot of fun to be around and a good friend. He will be missed very much.
Please know that our thoughts are with you and that he loved you very much.
The biggest tragedy would be to never have known him at all.
