Laughlin family, I am sorry to hear about your father passing away. I remember when he use to reload shotgun shells for me in the 1970's. Your family has my deepest sympathy.

Kathy, I just learned of your dad's passing. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family during this loss. Please know that, although it is hard for those of you who are left behind, your dad is no longer in any pain. He is truly in God's presence now. Just imagine: he is probably laughing and having a great time as he looks down at his loved ones! Take care of yourself as well as your mom who needs you during her great grief at the tremendous loss of a true partner and friend. I will continue to pray for all of you!
