Mike, Brother I am so sorry to hear of you and your families loss of your Dad. Although I did not know your Dad it looks like he lived a great life and did a lot of things he really enjoyed. It is always the saddest when we loose a family member and there are NO words that comfort us in these times, so just know I am thinking and praying for you and the family. Love you Brother, Rembrandt
