Kim, I’m so sorry for the loss of your grandfather. You and your family are in my thoughts and prayers.
I worked with Mr. Dan at the bingo hall when I was in college at Texas A&M. He was a kind and wonderful man who I admired very much.
After work one day, he invited me and another college co-worker to his house where Ms. Betty cooked us chicken & dumplings for supper. It was the first good home-cooked meal two broke college kids had in a long time.
My deepest condolences to his beautiful family. He will be missed.
