To the whole Tack family, I'm so sorry to hear your patriarch has passed. George and Marilyn were such a nice and loving couple, I mourn them both. The passing of my own Dad three years ago was the hardest I've ever dealt with, so I understand the loss felt by three sons. The hole left in your hearts...devastating.
Much love and sympathy, Adrian Sargent
