Beau and family,
I am so sorry to hear of your father's passing. While I never met him personally, I always remember our days at Jonathan Elementary when you would wear that NASA jacket with all of the Space Shuttle mission patches on it. Every time I see anything about NASA, I always think of those days. May God send you peace and comfort at this difficult time,
With Love,
Jeremy and the Rose family
