I am blessed to have called this man my Dad. He was with me celebrating life's victories and supporting me when life didn't go as I thought it would. Dad's unconditional love, endless support and love of God will be forever etched on my heart. Without my Dad I would not be the person I am today, he laid a strong foundation and I will continue his legacy. He was my hero and now he has gone on to see our heavenly Father. I will not say goodbye, but rather see you later. I love you Dad! Your Bluebird misses you so!!

We have lost a dear and wonderful friend. He fought a courageous battle that defied the odds that were against him. Fred and I admired his faith in God to see him through this journey and admired his intense love for his wonderful family - especially for his wife, Pia, of 61 years. Our prayers are with his family and we all know he is with our Lord smiling at all of us.
