Rodney, so sorry that you lost your dad. Tom, just ask me yesterday if i knew any thing about him. We thought he was still in Clarksburg. We did not know he was back home. We sure would have gone to see him. You took good care of him and that is all you can do. Now he is with your Mom and my best friend. Please keep in contact with us. Both of you take care. Love Tom and Sue Snyder
