  • Jackie, Joe, Man and families, so sorry to see your loss. My thoughts are with you during this trying time.

  • So sorry about your Father’s passing. Although he will be missed terribly, it is comforting to feel that he is now pain free with no suffering. He was such a proud, private and independent man who wouldn’t want to be confined or dependent on others. He was so proud of his children. He always talked so highly of you all. Always referring to Joe as “my boy”. I will miss his dry sarcastic humor. He was one of a kind.Hugs to you all. Sincerely, Kim
