Sash, It will be little things that we remember—smiles, laughter—and although it is hard right now, the memories of these things will become tools to push away the pain. Words may not suffice to express the heartfelt sorrow that I feel for the passing of your dad. Please accept my sincerest condolences and know that I am here for you.

Patty and Dale, David, Suzanne, Audra and families, we are so sorry for your loss. Steve and I have many happy memories of "Junior" in the racing years. He was a jovial man who always had a story and a smile. He will be missed.
