To my dear niece, nephews and their families,
I offer you my thoughts, prayers, and well wishes during this sad and difficult
time. I wish I could be with you.
One of the best memories I have of visiting all of you, is your father cooking a huge breakfast for us on a Sunday morning after Mass.
I know he was very proud of all of you and loved you and your mom very much.
He will be watching over you always.
With much love,
Aunt Phyllis❤️
