    Dear Mom Lally, Jack, Kim, Doug, Matthew Michelle, Ethan, Pat, Marita, Colleen, Joe & Dan,
    We can’t express how sad we are to hear of Dad’s passing. He was like a second father to me and I will miss him greatly. The memories we had growing up and all the time I spent at your house in Old Tappan were so special to me. Christmas Eve was always so nice and the trips to the Catskills with Skippy, Mittens and Crazy Tippy were the best! They were all great times we spent with Dad! Just know he’s in a much better place with God in Heaven now! We are all so sad that we can’t be together to pay our last respects, but please know he will always be in our hearts! We love all of you very much! With our deepest and most loving condolences.
