Will always have fond memories of childhood growing up in PA, where Sunday’s would mean going to Gobby and Pa’s after church and having Sunday dinner, watching football, and playing with our cousins. Pa and Uncle David were so alike in many ways. Miss those days. May he find eternal peace being reunited with his loved ones in heaven. Deepest sympathies.
