Dear Glenn, Kent, and family, My sincere condolence to you and your family on the loss of your father. Alzheimer's robs us of them before they leave us. I will always remember him as a giant man that raised wonderful children who were very special to me. My prayers are with you and your family. Eternal rest grant unto them, O Lord. And let the perpetual light shine upon them. And may the souls of all the faithful departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace. Amen.
