    Kerri, Kim -so very sorry to hear about your Dad’s passing. The “kid” will always be remembered by me. We all had some pretty fun times together! He would call me with his “What’s Up”. I was truly amazed at the things he would remember. I am so thankful that I got to talk to him the night before he passed, and I am so sorry that I am not able to be at the memorial. Take care of yourselves and remember the good times. He is now at peace.
