So sorry, Nancy. He surely cared a lot about others through his work. I never knew all that he did. I am glad you found him to share your life with. You certainly had lots of good times golfing and traveling and I swear that the picture of him was taken at his happy place--a casino, judging from his smile! I loved seeing him working on his l0 year front yard project! You have many happy memories. Take care!
