Cathy, Billy and Candy,

Sorry to hear of your dad's passing, especially after just losing your mom. They had a wonderful long, happy life together and we would see them out at restaurants in McHenry. Your parents showed great kindness to Dave and I and we know all your precious memories of your dad will be forever in your hearts.

God Bless you Mr. Bolger. You were a class act. God Bless the entire Bolger family. Hugs and love to all. Donna (Godina) Warneke
