  1. My sympathy is with u all. I remember him living above my Mom, the. Myself, and him always up and early, shovelling the snow, on the sidewalk out front, going for his walk to Piccadilly mall, and back. He was a loving gentle kind sole. Miss him dearly, and he will always be with u, side by side.

  2. We are glad you are with Heavenly Father in Heaven
