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.
So sorry to hear about James. He was fighting hard. Praying for his family.

So sorry to hear this Megan. You and your family are in my prayers.
Love you cuz you will be missed. Go fly high on that mountain till we meet again
