Brandy, Thanks to your Dad of integrity and goodness, I became acquainted with one of my closest and dearest Mt. Airy friends. You were the real thing and you demonstrated true care and friendship to me. Those attributes are taught to us as we live the values of our parents. My sincere sympathies to you and all of the remaining family. I know your Dad is looking down and smiling at all of you. You carry him in your heart and you make him so proud. Love, Kathy
So sorry for your loss. Sending you love and strength to you and your family.
