    Deb & Paul, 

    Sorry for your loss of your Dad. He was a really nice guy. I was so happy to visit with him before things changed to no visits. He loved talking about his family,grandson and his children. We talked a lot about Iowa basketball and baseball. I know he is at rest now but I will always cherish our visits.  Prayers and hugs to all of you.  Sue Bigwood
