To The Schepis Family

I am so sorry to hear that you lost your Dad. I just wanted to let you know that I worked with him for a few years at Western Union back in the 80's and he was one of the most decent, honest, caring men I have ever met. He was funny and always had great advise. He loved his family very much. I hope happy memories give you comfort at this most difficult time.

My deepest sympathies...
