I'm so very sorry for all of you. I know how difficult it is and will be. He was truly a great man. I will remember his kindness and soft spoken ways. I always enjoyed our visits when Dad would take us there. When I was little, there was a pet groundhog, then there were mean turkeys :) Then a mean bull you had to watch. Then the peacocks and llamas. Always something new. Lots of fond memories. My most sincere sympathies to all of you.
