Dear Heather,
I was fortunate to get to know your parents while I served on the Wells Recreation Commission many years ago. Your mom and I were "officially" on the commission but it seemed your dad was always there to help out with any project. My deepest sympathy on the loss of your dad. I know first hand how proud both your parents were of you and how much they loved you. May all your wonderful memories of happy family times bring you comfort and peace in the days ahead. God bless you and your family.
