    I remember how excited your dad was when he discovered treasure with his metal detector. He also loved saving money for NASA with its contractors. For some reason, he didn't talk much about the Treasury Department. He also would give me the NASA news magazine which I enjoyed reading! We give our condolences, and look forward to our reunion in Heaven.

  2. Lisa,
    My sincere condolences to you and your family. Please let me know if I can be of any assistance. Been there so I know how confusing things can get. Prayers for You and Your Family in this time. Especially lots of prayers for your Mom, she probably feels like it is a bad dream, here whole world has been turned upside down. Prayers for you and your siblings as well as I too know how it feels to lose a Parent.

    God Bless You All!
