Just wanted the family to know you are in our thoughts and prayers. Loss of a father is never easy. I remember him as a kind man and a good neighbor. I know he taught you kids well and hard work, especially picking strawberries at our farm. I’m sure your mom and brother were very happy to see him. He is in a happy place and will be in your hearts forever. With deepest sympathy,

Suanne and Steve Shoemaker
