Carla and Denise....your dad was always a fun loving guy. I can see him in Heaven with all the Angels in stitches. I remember you both as little girls. Karla, you were so ornery. I remember your dad calling you "Shammo" Denise, when you were little. We lost contact through the years. I am a second cousin to your Dad. Your Grandma Gowins and my Grandma Shull were sisters. So very sorry for your loss. God Bless! Nancy and Randy Alleshouse
