For some reason I decided today to look at the obituaries I usually do not very often. To my surprise the first person I see is Dad's good friend Jerry. I am so sad he is gone but I know he suffered so long with that asbestos. I know Dad is happy to see his good friend. Sending your family prayers and hugs.
