Even though Dad is no longer here with us, he will never be forgotten, and his grandchildren, nieces, nephews, great nieces, nephews, daughter in law Andrea, sister in law Deloris, his sister Carolann and most of all me will always be reminded of the extraordinary man he was. He was all class and so dignified throughout his life. I take comfort in the fact I know he was at peace within himself, and, most importantly, pain-free. It is extremely difficult to speak of the man that has served as the narrator of your life. In the hours and days since his death, I feel as if I’ve lost my words. I suppose it is because he was the person that provided me with so many of them. So many times, over the past few days, as I’ve struggled, hurt or hoped, I’ve thought, I should call Dad, he will be able to help. It is incredibly hard to imagine life without him, I should have been prepared for this day, but you never are it hurts to I know I will not see him again.
Dad: Your love, your patience, your understanding, your wisdom and your amazing sense of humor will live on inside us forever. You have given us gifts that are more precious than anything in this world. Goodnight Dad. You will always live on in our hearts.
Regards and Thank you all for your prayers and support.

Over the years my dad gained the nick-name the energizer bunny for all the times he beat an illness. But this time his battery ran out and the bunny’s drum stopped playing.
I would like to share a few reasons why I admire my Dad. First and foremost was his love and commitment for my mom, even after they divorced they remained great friends. I couldn't of asked for a better dad. He was supportive, hardworking, charismatic and let’s face it, a very handsome guy. I’m not saying that because I look just like him, he would love me saying that.
The word mentor has been used so much this week to describe my dad, and I feel so blessed that he mentored me in life. He taught me so much and I will pass on these core qualities and values to his grandchildren. Dad truly was such an intelligent man. He would always make me second guess my decisions or actions. In my eyes he was my “Dad always right” no matter what. When I was a little boy and still till this day I used to accidentally drop a word that would trigger him to sing. His favorite lately was “How much is that doggie in the window” sound effects and all or even a little Irish jingle. He was always the center of attention where ever he went. As far back as I could remember his signature saying when all the kids were around, I bet you know too. What’s Uncle Eddies favorite game “Beat the babies” he would look in surprise and say “not me I don’t beat the babies!!!!” and all the kids would either run or laugh hysterically. Dad was so patient to the ones he loved the most. Don’t get me wrong, he had his moments when he said everyone was wrong “but not him”, though with the ones closest to him he had an integral ability to listen, absorb and to offer advice based on quiet, measured wisdom. I know how much Dad wanted to be around on this earth longer, but it just wasn’t in the cards.
