Charlene, I was so sorry to learn of the passing of your father. It is so difficult to lose a parent, no matter what their age. Your dad was one of our war heroes of World War II. It took so much courage and bravery to defend our country at this terrible time in our history. You have much of which you can be proud. My sincere sympathy to you and your family.
