    Connie and Reggie, our family has so many wonderful memories of the Mountain View days! As your dad loved to play Yahtzee, we spent many hours playing, laughing, and having fun. He was an excellent cook and thought he had to prepare a meal for us most Sunday afternoons. He appeared at our front door one Christmas fully dressed as Santa Claus. He was a dear, kind, and thoughtful friend, and we were blessed to have crossed paths with him. Hang on to the great memories! Our prayers and thoughts are with all of your family. Don't lose touch with us! Much love, -Margaret Bryant and family (Don, Kevin, Toby, and Kristy)

    Reggie: I am so sorry to learn of your father's passing. He was such an inspiration to me. He always enjoyed showing me his "scenes" he had set up. I enjoyed them too. His collection of Elvis items is amazing! I will miss him.
