James and family. Sorry to hear about your dad. Although he is in Heaven without pain, it is still hard for those on Earth to deal with the heartache of him not being here. May God be with you and your family during this difficult time. Serri Wilkinson Team O2NE

James & Chris I cannot imagine what the loss of your Father in your lives will mean to all of you. There isn't a day goes by that I don't think of him. That started the day I was introduced to him in the "4th street McDonald's coffee group" about 7 or 8 years ago. From that day on...I became "Kathi #1 & Kathy Turnquist became Kathy #2 in his eyes and in his heart. He was so special to all of us. He knew religion & world history like the back of his hand...my Ancestry was Armenian & he joked about how "we" could be related...I laughed & said "no, I'm sure I came from a family of gypsy's". We laughed till we cried. I will continue to think of him daily...but oh I will truly miss him...I have so much love & respect for the man you all called "Dad". God made only one like him...and there were times when we all have said "thank God there's only 1 of him...what would we do with 2 of him" He is 1 of very few "unforgettable people" I hold dear in my life. Thank you for sharing him with us. Kathi White Hutchinson Ks
