Wendy, so sad to see that your Dad passed away. I always loved seeing him when he came home from work and I was at your house. My best memory is when he brought home that cardboard display that we used for our plays we cooked up with our marionettes. I thought that was the greatest!! Don't remember how old we were, but had a heck of a lot of fun with that! May memories of such a great dad sustain you through this difficult time. Sending prayers and condolences to you and your mom.
