My dad was a great man. I was fortunate to live with him for almost 28 years. We went on many family vacations together and I will never forget our camping trips. I will also remember always how emotional he was at my college graduation. It really touched my heart to see how proud he was of me. I miss him very much and always will.
Dear Romero Family, Sorry to hear about your Father. Our Mother (Mary) passed last year and we also lost our Dad (George) on Sept 27th. We truly share your loss. Our Deepest Sympathies, The Lamb Family ( From Prairie Ave)
