    I’m so deeply sorry for your loss. Most of my childhood memories are of you and your father. He was a great man and will be dearly missed. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.

    You were a loving and caring daughter. You know your dad loved you and his family even though he had a hard time expressing it. All three brothers are together now. How sad we feel that they are no longer with us. The rest of your family are with you through your grief and always.

    We will miss you Uncle John. I like to think of you now playing Keno with my dad, Papa, and Don at your side. Plus, you get to see Dennis who left us way too early in life. Be at peace.

    Pat and I are sorry to hear about your dad. And thank you for caring for him. He had to be one of the most honest people I have ever known.
