Dear Connie and Donna and families, Barry and I are saddened to learn of Conroy’s death. We commend you for caring so well for your father, a wonderful example. We remember Conroy at the family reunions chuckling while telling various stories, of repairing or retrofitting certain mechanical things and auto parts for his Mercedes. Oh how he loved that car. Please forgive our absences. Both of us have tested positive for COVID-19 and certainly don’t want to share this with anyone. Thankfully our COVID is mild. We will be thinking of everyone as you gather to say your final farewells and honor Conroy today. He certainly loved each of you. Lovingly with sympathy to each of you, Barry and Carryl.
