Nancy, Bucky, Eileen, Jean Ann, Chris: I was deeply saddened to learn of your Dad's passing. So many cherished memories of him with my parents and your Mother touch my heart. He was the kindest man with a contagious laugh and a warm irish smile. He adored each and every one of you and shared so many stories about his loving grandchildren and great grandchildren. His life was enriched because of his loving family. Please know that I loved him dearly and will keep his memory engraved in my heart. Love to all of you,
