Lori and Family, so sorry to hear about the loss of your father. I remember him well from Walnut Springs Middle school. He was always kind and easy to talk with. A very nice man. I remember him answering our junior high school girl questions with patience and respect. He had a positive impact on many young people. So sorry for your loss.
