Papa, my favorite memories of us would have to be our Tim Horton dates every weekend; chicken club sandwich and a cookies and milk milkshake from cold stone. Nothing but good conversations and laughs while we were together. Thank you for everything you have done for me. I love you forever 💜

Dubby, we will miss you. We have so many good memories, all the road trips we all took together, the many trips to North Conway, NH, searching for T02 😊. All the fun Super Bowl celebrations. And we know how you loved your Shrimp cocktail. The nights we would all jump in the car on a summer night and ride to Old Orchard Beach for a slice of pizza and people watching. You were a hard working person your whole life, loved to go to your boys ball games and you were always so good hearted to everyone. We will miss you! Until we meet again... ❤️

My favorite memory would be when I used to call Mary at 6:00 in the morning to make sure she was up and Dubby would say he just got back from his walk around the boulevard and we and him would laugh because we both knew he really didn't do that. My prayers and thoughts are with the whole family.

I love you Papa, I will never forget all of the memories we’ve shared, especially the ones where you’d pick Peter and I up from high school and treat us to Dunkin’ Donuts or Amatos, or even bring us to wherever we needed to go. We always enjoyed being around you. You were the best grandfather ❤️
