So sorry for your loss Barb, Kyle and family. I still remember the 3 of us road tripped out to see them in NJ. Your dad, grandpa was fun. He let us check the crab trap daily when we were there, and also showed us his station where he would paint on funny words or phrases on golf balls then when they got lost it would make the next person smile when they found it. Fun memory. You have our sympathies - Mike, Jill, and the Bradisse fam.

Richard was always Big Poppa to me. He and Lillian were an amazing couple. They used to attend Bridge Day weekend with all of us every year in West Virginia and they kept all the jump stats for the event. Everyone loved them. They always brought snacks, sandwiches and drinks and we enjoyed sitting among the rocks with them enjoying the day! You were well loved Big Poppa, and will be missed. Love to you and your lovely bride.
