Elsie and family,
God’s Blessings and His Love to all of you. Not much communication recently, but it does not mean I had forgotten my cousin. It was always amazing when we were both traveling, Dick in the truck and me in the car headed for a customer, how many times we met or passed on the road.

Tony, Michelle and Family, I am deeply sorry for your loss. I never got to meet him, but I remember all the great things you always said about him. He truly was a great man and father. You are in my prayers and in my thoughts.
Your Friend for life,
John K. Parlapiano

Elsie and family, I am so sorry for the loss of your dear husband and father. I remember him fondly sitting in the hospital cafeteria and chatting with “my cousin”. You are in our thoughts and prayers. Love, Deb (Croy) Inkrott
