My Story

This hurts so much for you to be taken from us. For you are our source of unconditional love... laughter...wisdom...fortitude...integrity... generosity and grace. You gave to so many without ever asking anything in return. You have cared for us and have shaped each of us. You forged family and friendships that are now an extension of you when we need you most. A safety net of people and love that is beyond compare. It is now our security blanket and our guide to life. You showed us what a loving husband does. How to support and care for the love of your life, your children and your grandchildren. You showed us what a loving grandpa does. How to spoil your grandchildren and how to support them when they are in need. You showed us how to live life. Full of generosity and caring for those in need. Always there when we needed you. You gave us experiences around the world that made each of our lives one of a kind. You showed us what a solid work ethic looks like and made sure we all understood and lived it. You built businesses in real estate, restaurants and manufacturing that showed us and the world how to take the high road, to do things right. To care for the earth and for the people on it. You took loving, sincere interest in the people who worked to make you successful and made many successful in their own right. We are living surrounded by your work - the gifts you gave this world. You introduced us to laughter - how to make people laugh with limericks and jokes. How to laugh at ourselves. You showed us how to connect and how to care. "Is everyone having fun?" "Is everything perfect?" "Is everybody happy?" You showed us how to enjoy food and drink. Your legendary cooking was on display at every meal. Saturday morning pancakes were a tradition that kept everyone coming back for more. Your parties were full of libations and fun. You showed us how a camera can capture memories and add beauty to our lives. You brought music into our lives. You taught us how to get back on the horse, you inspired us to win one for the Gipper and strive for perfection. Most of all, you were you. We miss you.
