Mike, so sorry to hear of that your Dad passed. It's been many years since we were neighbors on Hackberry, but I always remembered what a nice man he was and the hard work he put in to create his Japanese garden. You and your Mom will be in my
prayers during your difficult days ahead!!!! May he rest in peace. Amen
