Dear Austin Family:
We were so sorry to learn of your father's passing. He was such a happy man and it was a great pleasure to see him each time I visited my own father. Your Dads kind smile was often the first thing I saw when I would walk through the door. He brightened the place up. My deepest sympathy on your loss.
