Amy & Aaron, I am so sorry to hear of your fathers passing. I worked next to him at Amway, our departments were next to each other. I enjoyed talking with him and listening to his stories. He spoke very often of you both and his grandkids. Very proud father and grandfather. I wish you peace during this difficult time.
