Diana, was sad to hear of your dads passing. You have lost a lot of family lately. Bus was like all the Saile’s, good genuine people. I remember when I was a young boy, and you folks lived east of me, by Joe. My dad used to stop and shoot the bull with your dad from time to time. God bless you and your family. thoughts, prayers, and hugs to you.
