    I was 3 & he took me squirrel hunting on Christmas so my grandfather could sneak in my shiny new firetruck w/peddles. Missed catching Santa but we got a squirrel! ❤

    Vicki and Cindy, We wanted to send you all a card but do not have an address so we are so sorry for your loss of your father. Any memories I have of your family seem so long ago but good memories. This is from Doris Hollifield,(she saw it in the paper) and called my Mom: Louise Orr and I'm Sondra Orr Huggins! Hope you all are doing well. Cindy,
