Dad - Love you with all my heart and miss you dearly. It hurts so much to lose you, but I know that God has a plan for us all and has seen how well you took care of Mom and continued to work hard during this time to ensure that she had the care she needed. Because of this I believe that God needed you in Heaven to help protect others and battle against this virus.

Thank you for working hard to provide us with a happy and healthy life. You were a great Dad, Poppy and Husband. I want you to know that we will take care of Mom. I know you are continuing to watch over us.

Rest in Peace Dad!

you never failed to make me laugh with your silly text messages, constant jokes, and weekly phone calls. Words can’t describe how much I will miss you. I love you!

Over the last 54 years we have so many amazing memories. You were an amazing person, and its unbelievable that you're gone. From vacations with the kids when they were young, first week driving to wherever our minds wanted us to go, then always to seaside. It was a great time always, 4 kids in a small car, so many laughs, so many memories. When the kids got older we went on so many family vacations with them as well, from Disney to Mexico and Dominican. It was the most amazing times, even to our cruises. When the kids were young, I loved going out to dinner with the family every Tuesday night, it was a night I looked forward to, as well as Saturday night mass, when you would pop in after you got out of work. Having the grandchildren sleep over almost every weekend would make us both smile. My whole world was every moment I got to spend with you, your company is what made me the happiest person. Its hard to put into words all of our memories and amazing times, but thank you for always putting me first and going above and beyond for me, as well as our family. I will miss you, until we meet again.
Love Always,
Your Betty.
