    Thank you for "sharing" your wonderful father & mother on Thanksgiving a couple of years ago. What a treat to spend the day with a loving, caring couple. Your dad was a joy to be around and I am thankful that I had the honor of his presence.

    He was a great example of a family man. He was a friend to many. I have known him for over 24 years and saw many aspects of a father, husband and grandparent through his life. He was a tinkerer, a musician, a card play'in fool, a guy that would take your dollar when the Patriots won, and a great guy to have a beer with. I was glad that I had a "Dad" like this in my life I have missed him over the last couple of years but will always have the memories of a very special man. AirForce all the way. Love him and thank the family for some great years now gone by. Rose is the greatest example of a loving and caring wife, mother and grandma and they were the best when they were together. They made each other and was the love that you can only aspire too. Thanks for the love and memories.
