  • Jennifer Burkart Brad, Seth and Becky -

    I am so sorry to hear about your dad. I knew he was sick and had hoped to get over to see him, but never got the chance. He is in a better place, and I have so many funny and happy memories of him. I hope all of you are doing well...just wanted to let you know I was thinking about all three of you and hoping you are alright. Take care.
