Such a beautiful mass this morning for this wonderful gentleman. We were so blessed to have Junior & Mary as neighbours for the past 15 years, always a wave and a little chuckle when we chatted on the back deck. He would have been so proud of his children & his grandchildren this morning, such a wonderful family. He will be missed by many...God Bless you all

This is a picture of Dad and his friend and neighbour Joe Gillis. It was sent in to us from Joe’s daughter Pamela. Dad and Joe spent lots of time doing Legion work together. They had many good times and laughs together. They are both gone now and watching over us from above having laughs together again. Great men, great fathers and great friends.
