    To Kent and Carolyn and Family~

    I got acquainted with your Dad at Park Village Pines over the past couple years, he always had a Very Gentle Spirit that surrounded him daily with his Sweet Smile. When he saw me coming, after my work day with his son Kent, he always asked, “If Kent made me work hard that day”….my reply was, “He sure did, But I made Him work even harder!” … we enjoyed our brief moments of sharing parts of our day, as we reminieced of past better days,and then sharing a Heartfelt Smile with each other, often kidding with each other about his noisy son!
    He now can experience his Long Awaited Reuniting with Dear Loved Ones, And Our Dear Saviour who has made our Heavenly Eternity All Possible.
