    To Glenn and Family

    Dean told me the news about your dad. I am so sorry for your loss. I wanted to let you know we are thinking of you at this time of sorrow. You are in our thoughts and prayers. He lived a very good life. It is very hard when one of our loved ones passes away. I know this as I lost my mom 4 years ago at the age of 66.

    It will be tough taking care of his things with your mom, and your siblings. Plus all the wonderful paperwork you now have to do, but as you know he is in a wonderful place. If there is anything we can do for you please let us know.

    God Bless You My Friend;

    Kimberly, Dean and Kayla Gardippie
