My sister, Mary Roach, forwarded to me the obituary for your dad.  I want to express my sincere sympathy. Those years ago, your mom and dad were certainly welcoming and fun folks to be around.  It is tough to lose a parent and it reminds us of the linear path of life.  I will remember you in my thoughts and prayers.
