Bonnie I know this comes very late. I am not even sure you will read this because the time has passed so quickly, since your father's passing. I will always remember your father when he visited the ous Jocks family and I visited your home. He was a very special person. Again, I am sorry for your loss. I hope you are doing well and I guess I try and remember all the gun times we always had with our parents.
