    Denzel and family; I just learned that your Father passed. I was saddened to hear of your loss and would have attended the service if I had known. Unfortunately, although neighbors I never had the privilege of meeting your Dad, but I would occasionally wave when I would see him or blow my horn. You and your family were very fortunate to have him as long as you did. My prayers are with you, your Mom and your entire family.
