    Kevin, Todd, Michele, Shawn and families,
    We are so very sorry to hear of the passing of my Dad’s brother, your Dad. While we know there was a grand reunion in heaven with Grandma, Grandpa, Valerie, Bart, my Dad and many others there to greet him, it is still so very hard to lose a loved one and Father. Take comfort in the memories you all have of him and know that he is finally at peace and pain free. May he now Rest In Peace. Our thoughts are with all of you at this time. Hugs!
