I am so sorry to learn of your Dad's passing. I would have attended the services, but just learned about it from Mr. MaCaine at the recycling center this past Saturday. Sammy, we had just spoken not too long ago when I ran into you at the Ace Hardware store. My heartfelt condolences to all. I loved Mr. Stanton and the work he and his sons did for Mom and I. God Bless you always, and I pray that God guides you through this difficult time in your lives. Michelle Bauer
