Dear Donna, Patti, and Vicki,

Our condolences for the loss of your wonderful Dad, your father, the grandfather of your children, and great-grandfather to your grandchildren. We always enjoyed seeing him at Thanksgiving and Christmas and wished we could have gotten to know him better. We knew him as a quiet, thoughtful man. We were honoured to know your father, who served his family and his country well.

God bless.
Craig, Heidi, and Elisabeth Jordan
