Dear Dory and Family.
I’m very sorry to hear about your Dad. Our families had so much fun together over the years! Your parents were always very kind to me growing up in Pompano Beach. I’m so glad I was able to see him not too long ago at the Horizon Club.
Our thoughts are with all of you during this difficult time.
Now, your Mom & Dad are together again…
I only meet him one time, but completely enjoyed his company and lively spirit. Rest in peace...
