It is hard to put into words my grief of the passing of my dad.I am so proud to say he was my father.So many positive accomplishments to numerous to mention.He was dedicated to God and his church a true patriot to his unwavering love of his country a commitment to his family who benefit from his high integrity,work ethics and morals. I look to the words of saint Francis of Assisi for comfort.Lord make me an instrument of your peace.where there is hatred,let me sow love.where there is injury,pardon.where there is doubt,faith.where there is despair,hope.where there is darkness,light. where there is sadness,joy. O Divine Master,grant that I may not so much seek to be consoled,as to console;to be understood,as to understand;to be loved,as to love.For it is in giving that we receive.It is in pardoning that we are pardoned,and it is in dying that we are born to Eternal Life. Amen.
