Meg and Ellen, we're so very sorry to hear about your Dad. His picture brought a warm flood of memories back to me. He was my absolute favorite softball coach! I still remember how excited and proud I was to be on the White Clay Kiwanis team. The practices, games and the time at your house are some of my favorite memories. Your Dad coached with a great balance of patience, positivity, encouragement and competitiveness. I loved his sense of humor and the twinkle in his eye. He always made me smile. Just an all around great guy! Love to you and your family.
