Dear Stacy,
I was so sorry to hear of your dad's passing. I only knew him from coming into Ace Hardware. I think he won our first giveaway - a mower. Hope he got a lot of good use from it.
He and your mom were both such nice people. It was always a good day to see them when they came to the store.
May God bless you and your loved ones with comfort, peace, joy, and lots of good memories.
