    Your Dad was special. He did all that he did with excellence as his benchmark. He always said yes to anything that would serve others. He gave countless hours to the American Red Cross. Clients and staff benefitted from his gifts of time and hard work. He showed up over and over. They enriched so many lives across the US. Condolences to all of you.
