Not sure what to say?

I used to work with Larry at Cityside Insurance Agency a long time ago. He always had a smile on his face and had a funny story to tell all of us every day. What a nice man. My thoughts are with you all.

You taught me much Dad. my entire life I learned from you. Your final lesson was on how to die. I will miss you til I see you Dad.

Yesterday I sent a Christmas card and said "Let's get-to-gether soon". I will be there on Friday but this was not what I had in mind. What a dear man I am grieving for you Marion, Anne, Paul, Tom & Chris.
