Pam, Amy & Jim & spouses, I am so very sorry to hear of your Dad’s passing this past week. I have so very many fond & cherished memories of growing up down the street from my best friend Pam & close friend Amy. Mr Jim & Mrs Shirley Vaughn were good & loving parents, always so kind to me by including me in many family activities. I will always remember my halcyon childhood spent among the family, whether it was dancing in the Living Room or spending every Summer day at the pool. It was apparent to all that Mr Vaughn loved his family He was a good man, whom I’ve always held & will continue to hold in high esteem. I cared very deeply for the Vaughn’s & will miss them.

My thoughts & prayers are with you on the loss of your Dad. Growing up across the street and keeping you all when you were little so our parents could play bridge and have “grown-up” time brings back fond memories. My prayers remain with you during this time.

Your Dad was always friendly and always encouraging to me while we were growing up as friends and neighbors. He was a good man, and his character was evident to everyone who knew him. We know he is comforted in the presence of the Lord now, and I pray for your comfort in this season of loss for your family.
