Good evening Dan, the celebrated Mass of your beloved Father today was incredible. Your eloquent testament to family, God, humble selfishness brought tears. May you and your family continue Gods work; stay safe, and hold dear every memory.
Much love......'PERFECT'

Jim - Lisa and I are so very sorry for your loss. I know how challenging things have been and I'm sure it was comforting to him to have so much love and family around. No words can ever.

All Our Best,

Art & Lisa
