    Steve, Lisa and Michael….I am so sorry for the loss of your dad, but I know that he is in a better place and not suffering anymore. I will always remember the good times we’ve all had over the years, the parties and cookouts, as well as the times us McKinnon kids tormented him when he babysat us on Salem St. in Wilmington. Not to mention Billerica and him chasing Jim and not being able to catch him – because Jim let the door slam and your dad wanted him to open and shut it 10 times quietly…Jim opened it once, closed it and ran down the stairs and out the door! Those were the good old days! I’m laughing as I type this, though I’m crying at the same time knowing he’s not going to be there to have good times with anymore. I’ll cherish my memories of your dad – he was a fun guy to be around. Prayers and love to you all, Barb…Rockwell, Iowa
