Dad,
I know you are at peace and the end of your book has come. You are reunited with mom and your family, your family down here will miss you
I will always remember you with laughter and looking at life with a humor in everything. I treasure the things you passed on to my sons and the joy of life. Go rest high on that mountain. Until we meet again I love you.

"Big JC " was a kind, soft spoken gentleman. He was gifted with his hands, had every tool and a master of them all.
I used to know him well, as he was my neighbor and father to my childhood best friend.
This world has suffered a loss, but heaven has a great gain.
Rest in peace.

Peace,
Mike Pazera.
