Unc, We are so sorry to hear of your loss uncle Harold. Aunt Betty and you were always special to me and in recent years to Colleen. Aunt Betty was always one of the most classy ladies that I’ve ever met. And a beautiful soul to boot. She will be sorely missed. My deepest condolences also to Russ and Jackie Jocelyn and Ryan, Tyler and Amy. I know how hard it was when my mom passed But I took comfort in the fact that we will all be together again. You were all in my prayers and we love you all.
