Von, Janet, Bernie, Melvin and family..... what a soft-spoken and true "gentle" man your father was.
Never once did he see me and not offer a kind smile and nod.
Your family is blessed to have the memories of two very special parents.
May OUR GRACIOUS LORD grant you comfort and peace.

I love each of you.
