Dad - All the Love in my heart for you. Dan, Tim, Brian and I, are who we are because of you. We will make sure that your legacy and memory lives on each and every day through us, our kids, our actions, our thoughts, and our every day living. You did a remarkable job in raising and teaching us all on what family is all about. It saddens me that you are gone but will now join your mom, dad, brother and sister in the after life. No worries, just like we told you on your last days, our mom ,your Jocelyn Theresa, will be taken care of just the way that you would want it with love, care and family. So, Dad as I sit here crying and talking to you - May the road rise to meet you. May the wind be always at your back. May the Sunshine warm upon your face. And rains fall soft upon your fields. And until we meet again, May God hold you in the hollow of his hand. Love You. Love Always, Terry
