My deepest sympathies on the loss of your father.  I worked with him at Sears.  Underneath that smile, he was quite the commando on getting things done.  I know he loved golf.  Bill Mowery, George Hostetter, Bob O’Connor, were all of his golf buddies.  He will get to play the best golf courses in Heaven.  May his memeory be eternal.
