We all love you, Daaaaaad. No part of my life was untouched by you and your wit, wisdom, and love. I am proud to be like you and to be your daughter. You will always be my daddy! Now our talks will be via prayers, not phones, but you will always be part of me and I will carry you with me as I go on with my life...and of course, at Penn State games!! Your loving daughter, Kathy Ann

The Manhattan College alumni community shares the grief, and is now praying for our fellow "Jasper Maker" and the family at this time. Faculty -- current and past -- are recognized, remembered, and prayed for. We are mindful of the service of these good men and women that comprise the Jasper "forge" that making us what we are. The Alumni Office has been informed. As well as the Jasper Jottings community that I personally can reach. We are all a little poorer now. "No man is an island, entire of itself ... any man's death diminishes me". We are sorry for your loss.
