A message from daughter, Anna: It saddens me today to say goodbye to my Daddy, my rock. May 29th, 2020. He was one of a kind. I will miss you dearly Daddy. My parents would of celebrated 63 years of marriage this June 1st. Mom left this world 11 1/2 years ago. Dad has been waiting to be with her. Now they are reunited in heaven. They can celebrate their wedding anniversary together. My parents met when Mom was 6 years and Dad was 10 years. She moved in 4 houses down from Dad. It was love at first sight for Dad. They were married 51yrs before Mom passed. It is a sad time but also a happy one to know that they are finally together again dancing in heaven. I am blessed that God reunited my parents today on June 1st, 2020 on their 63rd wedding anniversary.
