I was a waitress at BrownsFamily Inn and we let your dad come in before we opened every morning and he would drink his coffee and read the paper and later order his breakfast. He was one of my favorites!!

We typed a memory of your Dad a few weeks ago but since we cannot find it on here now, we must have done something wrong so will share this memory now. We had coffee every mornning at either Burger King or McDonalds with your Dad and always had fun with him and looked forward to seeing him. He always had interesting things to talk about. 🙂 May your fond memories of your Dad and Mom help you through the years. Take care.
