Dear Editor:

My father Berry recently passed away and my family and I came home to Mount Carroll to help my sisters work on his house and settle his affairs.

Everywhere we went we received many positive comments about my father, which I deeply appreciate.

I want to thank the Sheriff's Department, the city of Mount Carroll (especially the street superintendent) who helped us with settling some issues related to his passing.

Also, I want to thank the staff at Shaw's Express (which Dad thought of his second home,) and the staff of FHN network who took care of me while I was home and Dad during his many visits.

Finally, I want to say good-bye to all his friends in Mount Carroll that have helped my late father very much. God Bless all of you.
