Dave & Joan, our deepest condolences. Your dad was a great guy, and certainly an influence in my life, introducing me to golf at a young age. Of course, I still can't get NEAR his handicap. And probably one of the first people I remember in my life. Our thoughts and prayers are with you; lots of great memories of our families. So long, Goomba...
