To the Strachan Family: My heart is broken because I have lost the ONLY father I EVER had. When I was a member of your family, he teased me so, especially when Steve was in Cyprus and there were a few times I zinged him right back. (LOL, mom knows what I am talking about). He was a very special man, military member, garage sale bargainer, BUT most of all the BEST husband, father, father-in-law, grandfather and great grandfather!!! You all will be on my heart and in my prayers. I WILL FOREVER LOVE YOU ALL, I can just see him WITH HIS MOTHER, SMILING AND DANCING ALL AROUND THE DANCE FLOOR. Mom, take care of yourself for me and let those children of yours take care of you, I KNOW THEY WILL!!! LOVE SUE

Our deepest sympathy for the loss of your father. We were just speaking about your dad before Christmas and how great it was to have him in your life, especially as he was nearing his 90's. May the memories you have bring you comfort today and in the days to come. Theresa & Dale
