My Dad took me to external radiation, 5 days a week, for 5 weeks, at Overlook in Summit, NJ
as well as other medical appointments, after my hysterectomy in October. He even waited in the hospital,
during my surgery, for me to recover but, he was told to go home and rest, as the surgery was taking
more hours than expected. I beat Endometrial Cancer thanks to your love and endless support. I only
wish I could celebrate my fantastic news with you.
Your devotion to your two daughters, Nancy and myself, was never ending.
We will miss you as each day passes on.
For this love you had for us, I celebrate my second chance at life.
I am glad Nancy and myself was able to care for you, during your terminal illness and that
we shared more memories, through conversation and affection.
You turned our world, upside down, in your passing.

My dad used to start his day with a cup of green tea and have a bowl of cereal, usually cheerios , with a banana . He loved a glass of cabernet sauvignon with dinner. When I used to go to the store if they had his 3 musketeers , I made sure to buy him a few of them, the big size ones. He used to tell my birds to hold the fort when he went out .Sunshine and Josh loved to sing to him. I would like to ask his family and friends to raise your glasses in a toast to my dad tonight and especially for his funeral tomorrow. You are missed dearly ,dad, and I try to take comfort knowing you are reunited with mom now. Fly among the Angels and may you rest in peace. I will forever hold you dear in my heart and remember everything you taught me and try to carry on without you . Linda and I are grateful we had a wonderful,funny , caring and strong man as our dad. God Bless you , always! Hugs and kisses,
