I wanted to honor Amber’s dad who just passed Thursday. I’ll always remember his amazing ability to remove any bird flying in his vicinity with his 20 gauge shotgun and I respect him greatly for his ability to show unconditional love for his children, one of which I was lucky enough to marry. Below is the text that will appear in his obituary:
