I have had the pleasure of be friending your dad for the last two and half years. I know he will find peace with Sophie. He will have her waiting on him in no time. I will miss seeing him everyday. My prayers and condolences go out to the family.
Here at the Village when a resident passes away we not only lose a resident we lose their families. He could not have asked for better sons then you and Paul. Remember the good memories of both.

Joel, Noah, Darby, and I are so sorry for your loss! I will always remember what a fun uncle he was and the phone conversations I had with him in the last few years.

My family and I had the honor of spending the last couple of Christmas's
with him. He was certainly entertaining and to say the least, the center of attention! He was a wonderful man and loved by all of us. He will be truly missed and will always have a special place in my heart.
