Margie and family,
I am so sorry to hear about Spark. He was "one of a kind" always friendly and willing to help out in what ever way he could. I have been thinking about all of you (and old times together) visiting and evenings playing cards at your Mom's house before we all got married. He was a hard worker and always enjoyed his walks with you and time with the kids. Stay strong and know he is able to walk without fear of falling and will be watching over us.
