  1. So sorry to hear of your Dad’s passing.We spent many wonderful Sunday dinners at Uncle Cricket and Aunt Lois’s after church while he was studying at Azusa Pacfic. We always thought so much of your mother and dad. You were very small and Jeannie was just a baby. Your Dad sent so many wonderful and uplifting e-mails. Jack is in the latter stages of Alszheimers disease and cannot use the computer anymore.He will be 84 in January. I am caring for him with help in our home and hope to continue that. His Dad lived to be 92 also. Your father was a fine man and we have the hope and faith that we will see him again in Heaven. Again, We are so sorry for your loss and know how much you miss him. Lovingly Jack and Carole Messer
