Alison and family,
I'm so sorry I didn't know of your dad's passing until now and missed the funeral. Your parents were dear people and I thoroughly enjoyed all the time I spent at your house. I remember your father teaching me about candling eggs. You were fortunate to have had him - both of your parents, actually - for all those extra years.
