Kathy, so sorry to hear about the loss of your Dad.  We Alger kids spent a lot of time with both of your parents during  the years we lived at the farm!  Your Dad was so meticulous about their lawn, their vehicles and their beautiful lilacs!  We enjoyed the time and conversations we had with them, always had a good laugh, I am glad I visited them while they were still home.

Kathy, your father was a wonderful man. Met him at Hilltop shortly after your Mom passed. He had a room across from my mother in law.  The three of us sat out in the sun chatting and we all became good friends. When he went to Asst living we went to see him. I was happy he and Mom had someone to talk to. Last I saw your dad was just before the shut down. He was loved by everyone at Hilltop,always a smile for everyone.  Sorry for your loss,

Kathy, Andy delivered auto parts for us here at the Miller Auto Team for a little while in his early retirement. He was a true gentleman and very kind man, who spoke so proudly and fondly of his family. I was very glad to get to know him, and send my sincere condolences.
