    Hi Janet and Terry. I was so sorry to read of your Dad’s passing. I worked many years with him at the post office. He was a good man. I have two dogwood trees in my yard that he dug up from his property and planted in my yard almost 40 years ago now. I think of him everytime the tree blooms. I lost my Mom last year (she was 95). They both lived long healthy lives. My thoughts and prayers are with you. Patty
