I was only in the Wild Goose Gallery once on my visit to Lancaster county yet I vividly remembered the inspiration he provided with amazing creations sold there the moment I read your Dad’s beautifully written obituary. Sorry for your loss. Love the picture of him with the eagle’s wings on his WG website. You are held in prayer for peace, comfort and joy during this Christmas week as you say your earthly goodbye to honor him. One day you will say a heavenly Hello.
