So sorry for your loss
To Bob and Scott Day and your family, I am sorry to hear of the loss of your father. You are in my thoughts and prayer. May God be with you.
We are so sorry for your loss. Uncle Mike (Butch to us kids) was always a favorite! I remember him taking us fishing with his buddy Gene Goddard to catch "sunnies" for supper. We proudly sported home our catch of the day (that Uncle Mike caught for us). He was always patient and kind to us kids. What an exemplary Uncle! I will miss him! Barbara (Day) Stalkfleet.
