Many great memories of our summers in Delavan, Christmas Eves, and parties at the AMVETS hall in Chicago. Really miss those days cousin. My prayer is you are finally at peace and you can now rest easy.

May the road rise up to meet you. May the wind be always at your back. May the sun shine warm upon your face; the rains fall soft upon your fields and until we meet again, may God hold you in the palm of His hand.
