Love you Dad. I hope you are at peace now. You were a great father to have had. I miss you.
Dear Aunt Margaret and my Tomei cousins,
I was deeply saddened to learn yesterday of Uncle Fee's death. He was a great brother to my Mom, a devoted son to his dear parents, and a very, very kind and generous uncle to me, especially the long-haired, 20-something version of me who showed up on several occasions at your house in Huntington, NY in the early 19070s having hitch-hiked down I-95 smoking cigarettes and talking loud. I remember well these visits and Uncle Fee's very, very dry and uncanny sense of humor, which I found hilarious – even when directed at me. And to have treated me like a special guest, despite my many unsavory features, is a compelling testament to his big heart and devotion to family. In short, Fee's generosity and care for me are something that I can never forget.
Although I am unable to be with the family in North Carolina on Friday, please know that Uncle Fee and all of you will be in our thoughts and prayers.
Tom and all of the Tom Loran family
Dear Aunt Margaret and all my Tomei cousins,
I was so saddened to hear of Uncle Fee's death yesterday. He devoted his life to loving and caring for his family. He embodied so rare a combination of integrity, compassion, dignity and wit. He was gentleman and a gentle man. And yet, rarer still, I have never known anyone who possessed a more profound and disarming humility which utterly belied his many gifts, talents and accomplishments. He will be so missed by all who loved him.
My love and prayers are with you.
Lee Dahlheim, Bruce, Nick and Mira

Our dearest Aunt Margaret and Tomei cousins,
We sadly learned of Uncle Fe's passing last night and wish to share our deep condolences. We will always remember his and your kindness and generosity through the years, especially our family gatherings in Naperville, visit to Huntington after the death of our father, golfing and birding in Burlington, and luncheon in Bryant Park. Admirably, he was a highly accomplished, but modest man, devoted to his family. With his gentle manner, wry sense of humor, and loving spirit, Uncle Fe will always be very special to us, and we will keep you in our prayers. With all our love and sympathy, Jenny and the Govan Family
