To the Case Family: I'm very sorry about hearing that your father passed away. I have many fond memories of him and he always made us feel welcome in his home when we we're kids. Even though I hadn't seen him in about 30 years I have thought of him often. I'm sorry I can't make it in to pay my respects, I just have to many cows to take care of these days. I want all of you to know that my heart is saddened by the loss of your dad. Sincerly Dave Lones
