My deepest sympathies to you Angela and your brother Jimmy. Your dad brought a lot of smiles that brightened our days. I will forever remember him giving me a hard time ( just joking around) and most of all the nights we used to play a few sounds of cribbage once my work was done. If it wasn't for him I wouldn't even be able to play. He taught me well. He will forever be missed

Dad, today is the day me and Angela send you to your final resting place to be with Mom, it's been tough thinking I need to be at marshwood to watch you only to having to remind myself you are gone . But I also have to remember your not in pain and suffering anymore. I'll miss your smartass remarks I'll miss the play fighting .but I'll get through it but it won't happen overnight this will take a long time to heal.
