    I was very fortunate to have gotten to “reknow” my father after all those years. I wish I could have been closer and visited more often. But he will always have a part of my heart and I will keep him in mine. Burnelle, if you need anything, you have our number and so does Judy. I grieve with all of you. Love and prayers,
