Dear Pamela and Sharon,
I was so sorry to hear about your dad. We will all miss him so much. Our mother (Jane) had a very strong bond with your dad. I have fond memories of the “Renick” reunions and staying at your dad’s house. I remember your dad making home-made ice cream. It was the best!
In later years I saw him in Stuart Florida when Uncle Horace, my mom & dad, and your dad and Shirley all got condo’s next to each other. What a group! I always got his famous medical advice before there was google.
I will miss him very, very much!
(Cousin) Bruce Biehl
