You were the best person I know and grounded by faith. Your accomplishments are many. What ever you did there were few who could do better.
Your strength was love of family, honor, kindness and a giving heart.
I am thankful for the time we shared and the memories I hold in my heart.
Rest In Peace my dear brother. Love you Cathy.

You were my brother and my friend. I could always count on your support and protection. With your quick wit and humor you always made me laugh even during a serious situation. I admired your steadfastness in the face of adversity. When you were diagnosed with dementia you told me if you run fast enough maybe it won't catch up with you and I believe you really tried. In the last couple of years our relationship did an about face and I became your go to person as oppose to the other way around. I will miss our conversations and you will always be in my heart.

Dear Chris, Michael and families. As my big cousin and namesake, your Dad was larger than life to me back in the day on Butler Street. All of the cousins and our parents would be at Mom Mom and Pop Pop Carney's house for Sunday dinner. Later, I enjoyed sharing our mutual love of flying when I would see him. I mourn his passing , rejoice his spirit's journey and appreciate the love and care you gave him through his life. I am blessed to have known him.

You made it clear early on that you were not my friend but my father. The distinction became clear as I became a father. Your role as my father was built on love, affection and esteem. You were someone I looked up to, someone who always had sound advice. You taught me problem-solving skills and the importance of being responsible. You never let me go to bed without a hug and saying that you loved me. Everything was a lesson and I'm still learning them from you long after the teachings were over. I can't ever remember facing a challenge and think how would you approach it. I miss you deeply 😔. I love you dad. Chris..
