Al , so sorry to hear about your father's passing.  It never matters how long a life they may have led, losing a parent is never easy.  Thoughts and prayers to you and your family.

To the family, I am very sorry to hear the loss of your family member. Ronnie sold me two lawn mowers years ago. One I still use a John Deere STX 38. A great guy, that will be missed.
