Debbie and Family, Jon and I were so very sorry to hear about the loss of your wonderful Dad. Know from the stories you shared that he was a big influence in your life. Your love of nature, the outdoors and fishing started with your Dad’s love of the outdoors and love of his family. Know how much he meant to you and how much he will be missed.
