    Sorry I couldn’t make it today. Lived next door to you and Norine for many. many years. You coached my son in Little League and were always there to give him a ride and being a single parent, he usually needed one. Thanks so much! I remember how excited you were about having your first granddaughter! Even Norine was amazed!! Every Christmas after that you were the first house in the neighborhood to get the outside decorated! All for the granddaughters!! Your family and friends will miss you! This old world was a better place with you in it! God Bless!
