    Pam and Shari, I am so sorry to hear of your dad’s passing. I saw him in church a few months ago and know he was really frail. I would ask Donald or Jim Geiser how he was doing. I had talked to him about how much trouble he had eating. My late husband had trouble like that too. The radiation just burned up his throat. (I did not say that to your dad, though!) I will remember the good times our Sunday School Class had together for so many years. Your family has my deepest sympathies. God Bless.
