Dear Steve and family, I am SO sorry to read of your dad's passing. I didn't know him as well as your truly lovely mom but I hope happy memories will comfort you as you have to move ahead. Out of respect for my husband's increased fear of the spreading Covid-19, I can't come in person to show my condolences at the visitation. I hope you understand. Again, my heart aches for your loss. God bless your family.
