    I was so sorry to hear about the passing of your father. Although there are never enough words to comfort you at your time of loss, please accept my heart felt condolences. I hope you remember me as it has been many years and I did not want to intrude in your time of grief .

  2. To the entire Novak family. Our sincere condolences from Keith and Marilyn Post in Georgia. Every time us Post kids get together we always talk about all those things we did together as families growing up and we end up laughing over and over again at some of the crazy stuff that happened…….almost to tears. Great memories for sure. Mr. Novak (as we Post kids called him) will be forever in our hearts and memories.
