    Shelly, Loren, and family, my condolences to you. It is never easy to lose a parent, no matter how long their life has been. We just lost our dad last Thursday. Your dad looks like a very loving and loved man. Great soundtrack to the beautiful photo tribute–I bet Shelly had something to do with that! Love, Jill Marts Lodwig
