Shannon and Calvin, I am so very sorry and stunned to hear of your dad's passing. He always had a kind word to say and a smile on his face whenever I saw him. I will always think of him whenever I am near a softball field, and you know that is often! He will always be Wally, Holly, Jenna and my "Secret Santa". My sincere and heartfelt condolences. xoxo
