For Mary Patricia, Eileen, Jeanne and Family,

Please accept our most sincere expression of sympathy at the loss of your father and grandfather. He was a gentle man, reluctant to speak ill of anyone, and possessed a wonderfully dry Irish wit. Know that he is in our prayers and that you all are as well in your grief. May he rest peacefully now in the loving arms of his Creator,

Dave and Elinor
