Kim, Hi this is Rose Alvarado, a friend of Kays. I am so sorry about the loss of your father. I know Kay and your family truly cherished him. While I never met your Dad, I always think about his wonderful garden tools. Kay borrowed shovels, rakes etc from your Dad for a service activity we worked on with our kids. Anyway I had never seen shovel handles which were oiled. They looked brand new. Kay said your Dad took good care of his tools and always kept them up . I was amazed because I had never seen that before. I have always thought that I should do (but I haven't)!

I think of my dear friend Kay often and wish she were still here with us. I miss her. I hope all is well with you and the kids. Take Care and know that I wish the best for you and the kids (who aren't kids anymore).
