So sorry to hear of your dad's passing. I was lucky enough to be on some of the golf trips that he took to Myrtle Beach. He was always so much fun to be around and his sense of humor and the stories that he told were second to none. He gave me memories that will last a lifetime. He will be missed by everyone that had the pleasure of knowing him. RIP Fernando
