Tammie's sentiments on her Dad....
"Dad was a man of integrity, with a heart of gold. He would give you the shirt off his back if you needed it. He took great pride in his work; growing tomatoes (the challenge is on dad), his woodwork, hunting, fresh & salt water fishing, horse shoes, dancing and more.... Dad was so proud of his schooling - "I got half of my grade 12 - grade 6...." Gotcha Dad!"
Dad, Love You
