The Manhattan College alumni community shares the grief, and is now praying for our fellow alumni and the family at this time. The Alumni Office has been informed. As well as the Jasper Jottings community that I personally can reach. We are all a little poorer now. "No man is an island, entire of itself ... any mans death diminishes me". We are sorry for your loss.

We are so sorry to hear about the loss of your father. It is something we all experience as we get older, but it is never easy. You and your brothers are so lucky that you had such a special relationship with your Dad!
