Dad, no words can fully describe how much I have missed you since you went to your eternal home. I miss calling you to check in with you. You, like mom, put on your happy face on the phone when I when I know you weren't feeling as good as you sounded. My final days with you were hard to watch you fade away but I wouldn't take that time back for anything. Thanks Dad for listening, encouraging, loving and sometimes just tolerating me over the years. Although I will miss you the remaining days of my life, it comforts me to know you are with the Lord. May the perputal light shine upon you. Love always, Chris

Jim and Sis were great friends of my parents- Jean and Glen Tucker (From the Fort Collins Moose Lodge). After my mom and Sis passed away, I continued to exchange Christmas cards with Jim. I am sure Jim and my dad are sharing some tall tales now!!
