As I visited this page today, I was really comforted by your comments and your memories of Neil. It's been a tough year, but I am forever grateful to my dear family for their ever-faithful support, their prayers and all the ways they have helped me move through the process of grief and loss. They have truly helped to "fill the gap" in every possible way. They are my champions and I will always be grateful for their kindnesses to me. I also want to acknowledge all of you out there who have left such kind messages, kept in touch in spite of my neglect of you, prayed for me and my family and helped in so many ways in these past months. God bless you all. I love you very much. -Nancy

Dad and Mom took their vows seriously, to love each other through rich & poor, good times & bad, sickness & health. As Fr. Grabner mentioned, their lives were testing in ways no one should have to be tested. Yet, they survived it all and with an ever increasing faith in Christ. Instead of being mad at God, they praised him for his goodness. The end was no different. We prayed throughout the day, and they held hands until the very end. That last day we all had with him was wonderful, filled with smiles and tears. Dad awoke at 10 a.m. and spent the day talking to all of us, returning our "I Love Yous" with "I Love You, Too" instead of the standard "Back Atcha." We already knew he loved us, but saying it once and for all was his gift to us. As we grow older, we come into ourselves in a way that allows us to just comfortably be ourselves. It was marvelous to see this happen with Dad. Dad always had a great sense of humor, loved being surrounded by friends and family, and he was completely devoted to our Mom. He was also very charitable, but quietly so, never boasting or wanting people to know just how much he did for others. Some of you may have seen a picture at the visitation of Dad with a little girl in a classroom. A neighbor's child asked my parents to attend Grandparents' Day with him. While there, Dad noticed a little girl with no grandparents. So, he was her Grandpa for the day, did the art project with her, made sure she wasn't alone. Dad delivered countless meals to doorsteps for people he knew wouldn't have a holiday meal, ran countless errands, did countless favors, always liked doing special little household projects or made sure cars were always maintained. THIS is who my Dad was, and the very best of him which we will try to live up to. Thank you to everyone who loved my Dad, surrounded him with laughter and joy, and filled his life with great memories. I know he gave the same for you. Thank you, too, for continuing to be there for Mom. She is very special to us. As we left the hospital Monday when Dad passed, Mom sighed. I asked her what she was thinking about. She replied, "I already feel lonely." There will be a void in her heart... but I know she has all of you to help make that void a little smaller as time goes by. Love and God Bless
