I will always love you Daddy. My heart is broken but you are no longer broken. You have finally bowled that 300, pitched a no-hitter, got all 8 ball breaks and got 18 hole in ones. Not too bad for your first day home! Until I see you again Dad, know my love is unending.

Sending thoughts and prayers to all the family. George was a great friend to everyone he met. My Dad (Edgar Clark) thought the world of George and we did too. My Dad needed a friend and George was always there for him. Now they can find golf balls in heaven together. Roxy can write a book about just that relationship. Love & prayers.
Len and Ann Clark, Corry, PA.
