Last Wednesday we received a late night phone call that Lori's dad had passed on. It was sudden. Unexpected. He was such a wonderful, caring man. Selfless, always ready to help, adopted me as his own son. He struggled with bad pain for 20 years, hardly letting the world know. He left us a young man. Lori had such a close relationship with him, and he was her mom's best friend. No one could possibly hold a candle to this man. Blake will be missed deeply.
