Dear Dad: During the past several days, I have been recalling fond memories. There are many precious times that we spent together boating at the lake, taking trips, and reminiscing about growing up in Exeter. We have shared many great events during our lives. But now our memories and photos are the remnants of our relationship. Although you will be greatly missed, I am blessed to have these remembrances. I know that you are free from your physical pain and that you are with your loved ones that have passed before. Dad, I will truly miss you and I am greatful for the memories we made together. With love and fond remembrance, Your Son, Larry
