We have so many wonderful memories of our times together, the outings, the parties and all the celebrations of our family get together s. He was always there to offer a lending hand for me and my kids (which he often referred to "his"). My kids knew that they could run to him at anytime and he would be there to meet their needs. He came up with his own nick names for all my kids, But the best was his "Beano" He always said she had a special place in his heart for her, his Goddaughter. He will always be in our hearts and forever in our memories. We are here for you Linda, Lisa and Angie always. May God Bless you and your family at this terrible time of grief. 67 years was just not enough time! Our Love and Condolences to your, my beautiful sister. "Blessed are those who mourn, for they shall be comforted"
