  • I'm sorry to hear of the passing of your father, I've known your family my whole life, your father was a very passionate man, he was a protector of his family, anybody messed with his kids would be talked to, and you probably wouldn't do it again, lol, he raised an awesome family and obviously had a great long life, condolences to the family. - Posted by: Grant Palmquist (Known all my life) on: Nov 23, 2021
