Kenzie and Trish, I remember the both of you coming into the Breakfast Inn with your dad when you both were very young, I was always glad too see the three you especially seeing how much your dad loved the both of you and seen how much he would smile when he had you both on his lap trying too cut up your pancakes. I had just moved to Wheatland and I was lucky enough too see the little things that both of your parents did in the little time that I waited on your family when I was a teenager. I am so sorry for your loss and I know how much he loved you both. We will keep all of you and your Mom in our prayers. God Bless!!
