I wrote some of my mothers Christmas cards so I recognized your dad's name as one of mothers classmates. My mother passed Jan 2015 but she kept in touch with her classmates. They meant much to her so I would just add my condolences in your loss. Wilma Powell was my(mother)

Dear Nancy & Dan, It is with great affection and love that Doug & I remember your dad and my uncle. We thank God for his being such a family man and friend to so many. His great sense of humor kept us in either fits of laughter or groaning from his puns and he will long be missed! We are also grateful for his military service for our nation for his time spent in the Army Air Corps and for his support of the military. God bless you as your remember him and your mother reunited in heaven! With sympathy,
Claudia Raaberg (Fairfax, VA)
