Dear Bill,Sherry,Maggie,Barb, and Cindy, Even when we know something is going to happen, it doesn't make it any easier or less painful. We were sorry to hear of your Dads' passing. We just saw him not long ago in the nursing facility. His spirits were amazingly high that day. I'm glad we got to see him before he passed on. We will pray that your hurt will start to heal soon. Love, your cousins, Mike and Mary Rickard.
