Very sorry to hear about the loss of your dad Heather! It has been a long time since I have seen either yourself or your parents. Your dad was always smiling and had a hello if I met him in town. He was always a fair principal and if I recalled, cared for his students. May you and your family find comfort at this time. In my thoughts & prayers - Dale Troyer
