Mrs. Shankowski, Tim, Shirley, MaryAnn, Phillip; my deepest condolences on the loss of your father. What a special man he was. I remember before bingo on Friday nights he would salute Budha for good luck, Ice Fishing was a blast, and the best part was the beautiful farm… reminds me in some ways of my father. Your Dad was jolly and fun and had a great sense of humor. Hold on tight to your mother and tell her you love her often….
