Jean and family,
Please know my heart aches for you with the loss of your dad. He was a wonderful man and I enjoyed my visits with him so much. He was lucky to have you all around him in his last months. YOU made him smile. God's peace to you all.

Dear Patti, Diane, Jean and Jessica.
Sending you all condolences from across the pond and wishing I were there to support you all. The time that I met your father and mother over 20 years ago I found him very welcoming and enjoyed being in his company.
Stay strong during this sad time.
Always your friend and always in my thoughts.
Much love Kate...xxx

Without your dad I wouldn't I have my Raine. And for that alone, my biggest appreciation of him, is my daughter. He will always be in my heart and remembered forever.
