    Our deepest condolences for your loss. I am unable to attend the funeral but am happy that I saw Dad this Spring. I loved Dad very much and called the nursing home the day before he passed away. He was sleeping so I did not get to speak to him. Dad also had 12 grandchildren and 20 great grandchildren. He did not know all of them but I will pass on memories of him to them. I love and miss Dad with all my heart and soul. Rest in Peace–Love Paula (Baker) Sinclair, Jeffrey Robert Allen Baker (my son) and John Silz.
