What a great guy!!!! I had more than one time after girl scouts- where Doris and I would hang out with him. It was like yesterday- saw him carving a hand piece, and was amazed at his accuracy and attention to detail. Very fond memories because of such a wonderful family. God Bless you all. I cannot help but think he is watching over all of you right now....
