Kathleen, Sheila, and family…I am so grateful to have had the opportunity to have gotten to know such a wonderful man. Thank you for that. You are in my thoughts and prayers and I ask God to give you peace and comfort in this difficult time. May your memories also bring you comfort and peace. He and my dad are having a wonderful chat,I’m sure, as to who really ”owned’ Boggs Run. May he rest in peace. Sharon McGee
