    Tammy, Brenda, Glenda, and Cheri: I am so sorry to hear of your Dad's passing. We have been gone and just read his obituary. As a friend of Kay's, I know how she loved your Dad and grandmother. They are all together now and how richer we all are to have had them in our lives. Prayers for your family. Janice
