My condolences to the Dighero family. This family is well known and are good people. Dennis would have been there welcoming his dad. Truly sorry and I pray for comfort and peace and strength to get through this sad time. There are a lot of family and dear friends praying for each of you and I will be doing the same. God bless each of you.
