Maura, Michael, Paula and families.
I have excellent memories of your Dad. He had an amazing sense of humour. Your parents were a great example of family love. Always remember your Mom and Dad staying over at our Trailer Park one weekend. Everyone had the 'roughing it look'..but NOT your Dad. He came out in the morning in neat pyjamas. silky housecoat and shiny slippers. He sure didn't look like a typical camper but instead looked more like Cary Grant, a Classic Movie star! Such a fun memory!
Life has not ended for Bill , it has only changed! He is with your Mom who I always told would have a 'deck chair in heaven' because she prayed constantly for all of us whenever she knew we needed it..I will donate to Aldzeimers Society in Bills memory.
God Bless you all ...My sincere sympathy on the loss of your Dad and Grandpa...Pam Cook

Paula, I'm so sorry for your loss. I remember your family fondly. I particularly recall going to a couple of Maura's track meets. You and your family always made me feel welcome. All the best to everyone.
