    I was very sorry to hear of your dad’s passing. You may not remember me but I was married to your Uncle Jim. I remember your father as a very nice and extremely funny man. You are blessed to have such wonderful parents. I remember both your dad and your mother, Jane,as being especially nice to me.

    God bless all of you at this sad time. I am sorry my health does not permit me to attend the wake or funeral.
