Hearing this breaks my heart. MY dad (Brian Frierdich) use to work on the UP railroad with him. The first time I met him was around this time of year and thought he was Santa. When I asked him he said no but he was one of Santa's helpers. I know of two years for sure he brought me a small present but I thought it was the greatest thing ever. He will be deeply missed by many.

Gayle, I am so sorry to learn of your great loss. Please know that you and your family will be in my prayers. From my vantage point of seeing you and Rhonda together, I know you come from a close and loving family and will get your strength to endure this loss through that family.
