Joe and Matt, I am unable to attend the services tomorrow, but I wanted to let you know how wonderful not only your dad was, but your mom as well. I have so many wonderful memories growing up with you both, and “hanging” out at the Farm. Take care, and know that I am thinking of you at this very hard time. With fondest memories, Patti
Bernie: Please accept my sincere codolences for the loss of your father. Be assured that the memories you have of him will bring a smile to your face whenever your thoughts are of the times he shared with his family and you. I know he was proud of the principled man you are and what you have accomplished.
