Our father enjoyed receiving your cards last year from those he knew and did not know. Please, if you are able, send him another card with a little or a lot about you, and if you knew him or not. He will have fun opening and thinking of you.

Happy 102nd Dad! We love you, Doug, Denise, and Dee Please send cards to: P.O. Box 128, Laura, OH 45337
