So very grateful to have known this man as "dad" in my younger years. I remember how his eyes sparkled when he laughed and he certainly was a gentle and kind man. So sorry for your loss, Terri, Jim, and Kim and families. "Fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God; I will strengthen you, I will help you, I will uphold you with my righteous right hand." Is 41:10
