Teresa & Barb, So sorry to hear about your Dad. I served many Masses with him and he was always smiling. I know he'll be missed by many from OMPH and those lives he touched elsewhere. Eva will be happy to have him "home again". Believe it or not as much as we all bicker and pick on one another we're lost without the other half. I hope you girls find comfort with each other. Pat and I still pick on each other but we're here for each other. Life's circle continues on... only now our generation is the older one...doesn't seem possible but Frank & I will be 70 this year. God Bless You Both! Hope to see you sometime we get back to Pa. . Love, Maryan & Frank Zook

So sorry Barb for the loss of your Dad. I wish I could have met him and talked about his life - especially his Army life. He was obviously a great Dad to our and your sister and husband to your Mom.
