Chera: Some of the following words come to mind when I think of you: hard-working, a good example, a spiritual leader, compassionate, dependable, and a loving father! Specific memories I have: you making a playset, riding behind your mower in a sled through the snow, playing basketball with you & Luke, making the train track, enjoying the golf hole you made, and the silhouette drawings you made of us kids. You have always been there for the family. Always leading, guiding, & lending a hand. Getting the trailer ready for camping trips or the important things like taking the family to church every Sunday. Happy 60th Birthday! I hope that God continues to bless you! Love you lots!
