    Bangor and Megan,
    I’m so very sorry to hear about your dad. Your dad has been in my life for the past 60 years as well as in a lot of other people’s lives starting back then. He was a huge presence to anyone that was around him. I’m sure you will hear a lot of memories during this time and I hope you will cherish them. I have so many myself of the times I spent with him and Carol and the father of my children. We all loved Dog, the Elvis, the Preacher, the raw hamburger meat eater, and every girls crush.

    What a wonderful, kind and caring man. I remember good times growing up with Vangie and visiting her dad. He reupholstered my car when I was a teen and it was like having a brand new car for me and Vangie to ride around in. I am heartbroken for Vangie and her family.
