I am so sorry to hear about the passing of your father, grandfather & great grandfather. I first met your father as a tax client through our VITA tax program at the Frederick Senior Center. He was a dear sweet man and was very dedicated to your mother. I will miss helping him! Bless your family at this time of sorrow.
