  1. My beloved uncle and godfather. So many happy memories of times shared. Your twinkling eyes and infectious laugh…you so enjoyed family. My mother adored you; my father considered you to be the brother he never had. I thank you for loving me, for always encouraging me to be all I could be, for showing me how you gave yourself constantly to help others. Principled always with tremendous depth of understanding…when my parents died so long ago you supported every baby step I needed to try to make as I moved forward. You will live forever in my heart.

    • Thank you Jo-Ann for your kind words. As you know he loved all his nieces and each one was special to him.
