    It has been many years since I last saw your Dad, but I remember it like it was yesterday. It was always a pleasure seeing him when I came over to your home to play with Laurie when we were kids. He would always greet me warmly and he always wanted to know what I was up to. He made me feel special on every visit. You were certainly lucky to have him in your daily lives. I am so sorry for your loss. My prayers and sympathies are with you.

    The Woo family are sorry to hear of the passing of your father. We remember good times at trapshoots with Rollie and I remember many a crib games between rounds. I shot on many squads with Rollie and he made me a better shooter because of it. Our condolences.
