My thoughts are with you all as you say farewell to your Dad. He and Pris were close friends with my parents, Chug and Betty Flock. Whether they were in the Poconos for the weekend or at Dunwoody with all of their friends, they always had a great time. You are so lucky to have had him in your lives for so long. Cherish the memories.
