Jeff and family - I am so sorry for your loss. Your Dad was a good man and he will be missed by many. I regret I was unable to attend his memorial service but you were certainly in my thoughts and prayers that day. May God grant you his peace as you walk through this season of life. God bless you all.Grayson Thomas and family
