Dear Renee: So sorry to hear about the recent passing of your dead.  He was a great guy.  I still have fond memories of him driving the family (and me) in the van and going to Wendy's for a frosty.  He always had a smile and a kind word.  Please extend my deepest sympathy to your mom and all your family ("John Boy", "Jim Bob", "Ben"  and your sisters.   You and your family will always have a special place in my heart. Wishing you God's Peace! Love and prayers to all of you, Jane (Larry) Stromecki
