I'm so sorry for your loss. My heart hurts for you all. I had the opportunity to talk baseball with your Dad and it was so much fun to talk Astros. It made me laugh when he was telling me that he was working to get Helen to be a fan too. I know these past months were difficult and he is now at rest. He will be greatly missed, keeping you all in my prayers. Love you! Abby
