  7. Dear Laura, Susan, Joey, Tony, Michael, Sharon, and all of your family,

    I am so very sorry for the loss of your dad, (grandfather and brother). He was a wonderful man and your family has given me so very many wonderful memories. Your parents were there whenever my family needed help and you’ve all helped my dad since my mom passed and I appreciate that more than you know. You and your parents also helped my mom a lot as she struggled with her cancer and she loved when you visited and invited her to your parties. I’m sure the three of them are taking care of each other in heaven and continuing to watch over us all. Please let me know if I can help any of you with anything. My heart and prayers are with you now and always.
