My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family during this difficult time. Even though I never had the privilege of meeting your dad, I did hear many stories of what an amazing and funny man he was. May the fond memories stay in your hearts and minds and comfort you, always.

Denise, Debbie, dan and Doug how sad we are to hear of this news. When grandma (phyllis) and pap (mark) passed we knew how bad he wanted to come to their funeral but was unable too due to his health but now him and your mom are reunited with grandma and pap, having the time of their lives in heaven a reunion we wish we could see! A beloved neighbor of our family for so many years he truly will be missed. We always looked for him to sneak that arm out and get the mail to know he was okay. praying God brings you peace during this difficult time. Let us know if you need anything at all
Sending love & prayers
