Kim and Bonnie: My heart goes out to you both and the rest of your family for your Dad’s passing. It was a true testament to your Dad to see how you all took care of him. Kim, I’m sorry I didn’t get to give you a hug when I was in town on Monday but you were where you were supposed to be. Bonnie, it was so good to see you. You guys not only took care of your Dad, but you took care of my Dad and he loved you guys and your Dad to pieces. May your many, many wonderful memories and happy times get you all through this difficult time and the days and milestones ahead. With much love and much appreciation, Vickie Guidas.
