Richie, Deanna and Tim, your dad was a good guy with a great smile. I will always remember his good heart, and happy soul. Although decades have passed, I will always remember the times when our families got together. It was part of a happy life, hearing our parents laughing together in the kitchens of our childhood. I know our fathers are together again, celebrating lives well lived. Love to you all.
