Girls, I just saw this in the Chickasha Obituaries. I am so sorry for the loss of your Dad and Mom. Your Dad was a special man and a special friend. I still have many wonderful memories of the times we had together. God bless you.

Melinda, just saw this listed, on Express Facebook page. So, so sorry for your loss. I met your Dad at Five Oaks, several years ago. Such a nice man. Also talked w/him on phone numerous times. Prayers. ♡

My sympathy goes out to the family. God's word brings us hope and comfort at John 5:28,29 where we are told of the resurrection. Also Rev. 21:4,5 tells us one day death will be a thing of the past. My you find comfort as you meditate on this promises.
