My dad was a comedian to his family and friends. He loved his boats, motorcycles and cars, and loved my brother and me so much, that he adopted us when he married my mom. My dad loved my mom so much and they were together 51 years. I feel so lucky to have spent the last few years living with him and mom again and so thankful for him as a dad. He spent over 30 years with a company he loved, H J Heinz, and if we tried to bring in a competitor brand in the house he would say “get that out of here” lol. My dad taught me so much about life and I will forever be grateful to him. I know he’s in heaven watching down on us now and I know I will see him and the rest of family and pets again. Love you dad with all my heart. I miss you, but feel in comfort knowing you are still with us.

I am so sad to hear that Richard, my second cousin, is gone. In his twenties, he would come to visit us in New Hampshire, where my mother Virginia, who was his first cousin, and our family lived. He was full of fun, brought us endless laughter, and we were always so happy to see him. Sometimes we'd see him in Pennsylvania and Florida too. We will all miss this wonderful guy, who brought joy to so many.
