    I know your hearts are heavy with sorrow, as are mine, Tammy’s and Robert’s. I know he was a wonderful father, father-in-law and grandfather.
    He was more than a kind and helpful friend – he was family.
    Believe in your hearts that God is now taking care of him and your mom.
    Love, the Dylong Family
