Not sure what to say?

Dear Pam & Kim,
I just wanted to extend my condolences to you and your families on the passing of your dad. I have many fond memories of your dad and mom when we lived on Gowin Road. He always would stop what he was doing to chat or visit with my family. May your memories of dad bring you comfort in the days ahead.

What a wonderful life I was able to share with Uncle Alan. All of the family gatherings growing up, his love of flying planes, hitting golf balls and making some pretty funny jokes, quite frequently, My recent visit he requested liver bacon and onions. Since I was sure no one would prepare this, never the less eat this , I prepared it for him. I will treasure that time I had with him forever. Alan , Pam and I will try to stay out of trouble, promise.

My Great Uncle Alan, you were a great Uncle and I have many good memories of you when I was so young. Rest of Peace and Love you. I will see you later. Love Paula

Although I only knew him for a short time, his wisdom, humor, and kindness touched my heart forever, and I became attached to him. Ill always remember our long talks on his back deck, talking about the Red Sox (he did not like that Im a Yankees fan! ), our love of Frank Sinatra, and many other things. Rest in peace, my forever buddy. I will miss you. Sending condolences to all of his family and friends. There was a reason Mike came into my life...

Kim, So sorry to read of the loss of your dad. I think of you and your family often. Much love to you at this time.
