Precious memories of family dinners and games afterwards. Playing charades and Dad laughing silently with tears streaming out of his eyes. Getting ribbed for breaking the dining room light. Dad being so shy and uncomfortable when first meeting me that he hid in the bedroom. Teaching me the rules of football, baseball and basketball. Those shy, quiet moments with his grandkids. Sooo many loving and joyous holidays. Rest In Peace Dad. Love you forever, Becky

Love Becky, Brandon, Heather, Nicole, Caleb
