Dear Tess, Michael, Tommy and your families.
Sorry to hear about the Rock! He had a good life and was around for all of you for an awful long time in your lives. He had a long life and was living nearby both of you for a long time.
He was a good guy for the years I remember sitting on the beach or at the house in Chadwick, when you were living there.
Will never forget running with him in Spring Lake Five on Memorial Day for a few year in the 80's. Also, when we were with him when he met Joe DiMaggio in the city at the card show at the Statler.
Our best to all of you and will keep him and your Mom in our prayers. If I was not going to be with my Dad in CA. on Tuesday, I would have been there.
Michelle, Joe, Kyle and JL Foley
