  • I knew your father as the kind and smiling gentleman who sat behind me at Mass every Saturday evening for the past 7 years. He always greeted me with that unforgettable smile and we left each week after a hand shake and a ‘have a good week and see you here next week. I know I won’t be seeing him for awhile but I look forward to seeing that smile again someday. I will miss him. My heartfelt sympathy and prayers are with your family.
