Sue, I was sad to read that your wonderful father had passed. My childhood memories of him, and your mom, are cherished keepsakes…..the trips to Coney Island…..They were both always so kind to me. I pray that you too find comfort in such memories.
Dear Billy, So sorry to hear of the passing of your father. What a great guy he was in so many ways. I have such fond memories of your parents at Runyan Memorial and the big part they played in that church. God bless you and your family.
So sorry for your loss. My thoughts and prayers are with you during this difficult time.
